Avonex experiences

Hi all, I have quite happily been on Copaxone for just on two years now but unfortunately despite very careful rotation I have accumulated a number of lipoatrophy 'dips' where I inject. These are only increasing so I have been advised to move to Avonex. I have recently seen tales of a few disturbing experiences by people on Avonex which have freaked me out a bit. So i'm looking for some advice before I start. What to expect at the beginning, do the side effects really ease with time? How many of you have ended up with depression as an effect of this drug? I have read plenty of 'official' information now i'd like some real testimony. Thanks.
