Plegridy

Hi all, just wanted to ask if anyone is on Plegridy and how it is going (side effects etc). I'm due to start the injections and have agreed to take part in the research, mad really as I seem to get every side effect going with medication. Any comments, positive or negative would be great. Thanks x

Hi, how are you getting on with it? I am suffering a lot from it. Flu for 3 to 5 days afterwards, so am hoping to change treatments soon. Been on it five , six months and it hasn't got better. Sorry to sound so negative!!

Hi @pinkyx, thanks for your reply. I'm starting at the end of this mth when I see my ms nurse at clinic. they are sat in the fridge as I speak. I've heard that the flu symptoms are supposed to last a couple of days and can be treated with over the counter pain killers but it's not great if you feel like that for that long :( x

Hi all this is my first posting - I was diagnosed Sept 2015 but only just managed to get the consultation re medication where Plegridy has been the suggested option; I will be trying this very soon. I would be interested in tips to avoid side effects and suggestions as to where to insert the needle from your experience Many thanks Knotty

Hi @knotty, I've just started and it was exactly as I was told. Flu like symptoms for 2 days...managed the first day just taking paracetamol but then had to resort to ibuprofen. Just be stocked up with these and have a couple of days rest. I found it easier to inject into my thigh. Good luck with it x
