Michele and Gracie's Mom,
Thanks for you thoughts. I have heard that immune boosters may interfer with Avonex, which makes sense given that Avonex is suppose to decrease the immune system in order to stop it from attacking the mylen sheath, right? But I have also read that Omega 3 fatty acids (EPA) and Coq10 have been helpful in ms. Of course, my daughter will have to consult her neurologist before trying anything like this.
My daughter having ms at the age of 22 just breaks my heart, but she is amazing and seems to take things in stride. None-the-less helping her do her IV steroid treatments because her eyes have been hurting over the Christmas holiday was sad to see and made me want to find something that will make a difference.
It is helpful to read all of your postings that confirm the belief that interferons are good. They are so harsh that I just freak at my daughter using them, but of course am supportive. What the heck do I know after all!!!
Thanks for letting me vent here.
