I can't tell you if there will be a reaction with the Rebif. You are taking some herbs that can be toxic and damaging at high doses though. They do all claim benefit as well of course. I poked around on the internet and this is what I found as far as risk goes. Remember, that I am not a doctor so this is all just junk I found on the internet. I hope it helps. The over all feel I get is that he is treating anxiety (or trying to help you feel calm and well), memory and cognitive function and inflammation. All those are definitly concerns with MS.
Kava Kava has been known to cause liver damage.
Skullcap can cause liver damage. That might be a concern because I know that Rebif can as well.
Ginkgo at high doses has been associated with strokes.
Rosemary should only be a problem if you are allergic.
Wild yam is an odd one. It could possibly help with stomach aches or it might do nothing at all.
Passion flower is considered pretty safe although it might cause blood clotting problems.
Bilberry is basically just a concentrated fruit. It has a lot of anti-oxidants and is suppose to be anti-inflammatory.
Eyebright has been unproven in most areas and the side effects are not well known. It may cause confusion! That seems pretty icky.
corydalis seems to be used for nerve pain. It can also cause liver damage and even hepatitis. Side effects are vertigo, nausea and fatigue.
I would watch the liver damage. If you can get a (or maybe you already have?) a baseline liver test, then test frequently after that. I think you really should share this info. with your western doctor and let him know that you are trying these. He might not agree to what you are talking but he should agree to blood tests. Good luck! Let us know how you do. I do hope it helps.
