Plegridy

Hey guys, saw my neurologist (or her mate) and they're eager for me to start DMDs. Plegridy was suggested, can anyone share experiences of this? Thanks Ben

Hi Ben ... I don't want to put you off at all but ask around about the side effects as I was on Plegridy for seven months and the flu side effects were Awful for me, flu etc every other week. !! Maybe I was unlucky but the road to getting lemtrada happened because I tried the Plegridy ... Good luck with your choice. We all get effected differently so it's hard to say. But the actual self injecting I had to ask my partner to do as I'm a wimp !! Xx

I'm waiting for Bupa to call to arrange delivery of plegridy... I was on Tecfidera but had severe daily side effects. I've read lots re side effects but I guess the only way we'll know is of we give it a go and just try! Have you got a start date yet?

I have been on Plegridy for 3 months after they stopped the Avonex bio-set. The only side effect I get and I don't want to scare you is that the lymph glands in my groin swell. I have got used to it down and the flu like symptoms are controlled with pain killers and ibroprofen.
