Advice & Tips: Has improved Avonex side effects. Not sure if hives/itching was caused by Avonex, but the Xyzal has definitely eliminated that condition. This has been an excellent treatment. Has taken the place of 3 other medications! (Zantac, Zyrtec and Benadryl) and absolutely no sleepiness/drowsiness.
Cost: $50-99 monthly
