    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 8.8 mcg 3 times a week
Advice & Tips: Because I am just restarting Rebif treatment, the doctor started me with the Rebif Titration Pack. The Titration Pack contains Rebif pre-filled in 6 syringes with 8.8 mcg (0.2 mL) and 6 syringes with 22 mcg (0.5 mL). I started the therapy on Tuesday I am supposed to take one dose 3 times a week, but I have decided to skip Saturdays and Sundays so starting next week, my Rebif therapy will be on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This way I'll have no injections on the weekend!
