Saw the doc. today and we are going to switch from avonex to rebiff.I need to wait two weeks with nothing then if the insurance is a go start the rebiff. Am a little nervous about it all.Avonex was the only thing I was on but it isnt working..He said I need something stronger..Going to try with the auto-inject.If that doesnt work there are plenty other options he said..I think he meant tysabri or novatrone or even betaseron. Not copaxone tho...Not sure why...Oh and i ordered a wheelflex today to.....I am anxious to get that and get started with it....And had to give in and get a shower seat too..I put that off for along time and I dont know why I did it makes things so much easier.Saves some energy...Which is good....barb

Hey Barb,

I am glad to hear that your doctor is trying to find a formula that works for you.  I truly hope it helps.  I am so glad to hear about your wheelflex.  That is so great.  I remember you talking about that at chat a while back.  We have a shower seat.  It is great!!!  We had it built into the shower wall for my husband (amputee). 

As always, it is nice to hear from you.

Hey there,

I am on rebif and it has worked really well for me, I take an injection 3 times a week, I choose Mon, Wed and Fri as my days so I could get weekend off. I started on 8 and now on 22 which has helped me.

Good luck with it hope it works well for you too

Hey Barb,

No Rebif was the first thing I was put on and thankfully it seems to have worked for me.
