  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 3 x 44 mcg/0.5 mL Weekly
Advice & Tips: You need to slow the progression of this disease. I have been on this drug for approximately 5 years and although my ms has progressed it has not done so nearly as fast as it has for those in my support group who are not on any of the ms treatment programs. Hope for a cure, but slow the progression while you are waiting.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Generalized muscle aches, Chills/fever

  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: None
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 1 every other day
Advice & Tips: Quite frankly Rebif is geared towards RRMS. Being SPMS, my neurologist suggested it, stating it showed some prospect in SPMS. I feel my gait and walking has slowly diminished. I am now on a 2 yr clinical trial, aimed at SPMS. At 59 yr. I'll give it a try, and if nothing else, testing for the future.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
Side effects: Injection site redness, Injection site pain
