Can anyone tell me if they have had less side effects on the powder "mix your own" Avonex VS. the prefilled?
I continue to have such a battle with side effects. Last night I had severe chills for 3 hours then ran 103 fever. I have every side effect listed except for diarrea ( and that would be a welcome one!)
I called the neuro and her nurse said some folks have less side effects on the powder mix. Avonex does not acknoledge that, they say the formulas are the same and there is no basis for it but some folks do have less side effects with one form or the other.
I am feeling quite ill these days, not only with the MS but I'm still trying to recover from sugery and had to have a large hematoma drained onTues. (very tramatic experience).
I have another test for the gut motility issues next Wed. It is not a pleasant test but neccessary. I failed the sitz marker test, all the xray markers were still in my intestines after 4 days.
