  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Can’t tell
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 20 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: it's always been a chore for me to remember meds, even including like, antibiotics (taken 2,3,or 4 time a day... i'd always forget!!!) but this is a once a day shot i take every morning. if i happen to forget it, (happened a time or two since starting it) i can still take it as long as it is at least 12 hours till my next shot. a lot of pressure to be RIGHT ON TIME is gone. so much nicer... i DO get the lumps after the shot on my legs, and the sting/itch on am shot days, but nothing i can't deal with. pretty positive experience overall. :)

  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 20 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Warm up the shot first for a couple minutes on your belly. Help to stop radiating pain.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Redness, Lumps and bumps, Injection site itching, Injection site pain

Nov 22, 2009 (Started May 21, 2009)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Can’t tell
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 20 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I take this right before I go to bed at night. Moving around helps - if I sit still right after, the pain is worse. I just read some advice on this site to warm the needle to body temperature - I did it last night and the pain was much less intense! The pain stayed localized at the injection site instead of spreading a foot from the site as it usually does. I put the needle against my stomach for 2 minutes. You get used to the pain thought - if these meds work it's totally worth it.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Redness, Lumps and bumps, Injection site itching, Injection site pain
