When I was first diagnosed 10 hrs ago I went on Avonex, the worst time of my life!! I would get my injection on Friday afternoon and within an hour be on the couch with nasty flu like symptoms for the whole weekend! I went thru a year of it. I kept being told “ oh it’s just your body getting used to it, keep on it for a few more months” I went thru a year and finally gave it up.
Now I’m on gilenya and it’s great!!
