This is my first post.
Getting my first batch of plegridy tomorrow.
I'm planning on starting to take it at some point this weekend.
Has anyone got any tips or advice.
To be honest I am a little nervous.
I refused to start a Tecfidera protocol due to the huge list of side effects, that I don't think are reasonable in my actual condition. I'm almost normal, wouldn't even visit a doctor in case I wasn't diagnosed with RRMS (I had two eye episodes, that's why I made an MRI and was diagnosed, bu...
Hi, diagnosed 20 years ago and very lucky to have been ok for much of the time. Was left with little support and no idea that a resource like this existed (happy to meet you all!). Last week began Plegridy. Shocked by the "flu like symptoms". Anyone else on it? Would love to know if it's workin...
I've had quite a hard time on Avonex with the side effects. But I've stuck with it for 7 years as it's doing its job and I'm OK MS-wise. It's been getting to me recently though so I've been thinking about the alternatives.
I was chuffed to discover that the same drug is now available in 2-weekly i...
Hi I'm having to change my DMD due to side effects off Copaxone which I thought suited me after a couple of years on it,all of a sudden I get chest tightness every time I inject and sometimes makes me dizzy,i know it's not the worst side effects but it's unpleasant and I don't like it. Just wonderin...
I was diagnosed in October 2015 after having my first relapse and am about to begin the Betainterferon Plegridy injections soon. I am quite nervous about starting it, particularly the bit where I have to inject myself, and was interested in finding out how people have got on with it?
Hi all. I have been taking plegridy which is an updated version of avonex ( I think. ) ... And I take it every two weeks ( self inject ) and I makes me ill for near to a week with side effects, the first two weren't as bad, as they were lower dosages but the others , which were full dosage have been...
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
I was recently advised to start treatment as I have developed new leisons in my spinal cord! I had the choice of 3, which all seem much the same, with similar results and side effects. I chose Plegridy due to it being allowed to be out of a fridge longer (I like to travel) and only 1 injecti...
Hi. Just wondered if anyone was on plegridy? It's still a beta feron but the injection is only once a fortnight rather than 3 times a week. Sounds really good but they've only really had long term results from Germany. Has anyone else been told about this or are on it?
Hi my husband has rrms diagnosed 4 years ago he has started on plegridy just had his third injection yesterday is any one else using plegridy and what side affects do you get he gets the fls within minutes of injecting then feels rough for couple of days would love to hear other people's stories
I have been quite a binge drinker since the age of 16 (going out at weekends etc) and last few years I guess me and my wife will have a bottle of wine each a few times a week. I got diagnosed with ms last year but generally haven’t had too many problems apart from health anxiety.
This week on 2 s...
Has anyone had any experience with plegridy? I've been taking copaxone for a year, it's been working except my skin doesn't react very well to it?
The idea of going from 3 injections to 1 every 2 weeks appeals to me alot better.
Hello everyone, just back from my neurologist appointment. I was diagnosed with RRMS in June and have only had 2 mild sensory relapses in the last couple of years. My neurologist has suggested I read up and research these two DMTs with a view to maybe starting one of them after I’ve had my second MR...
I've seldom heard about Plegridy here on Shift. Why does it seam to be so unpopular? I'm on this medicine and doing very well, and would love to exchange/read opinions of other users or any knowledge someone may have about it.
I have rejected disease modifying therapies a number of times since being diagnosed with relapsing-remitting ms in 2006.
I'm currently being strongly advised to begin using Plegridy or Copaxone. I'd be really interested to know how other people have got on with these treatments please.
