    • Plegridy

      I am searching for advice. I became allergic to copaxone and the side effects of tecfidera meant I couldn't get to the full strength. I have since been on plegridy for 33 weeks and I'm finding it difficult. One week out of every 2 the DMT is intensifying the MS symptoms. I've been told that there is not much else I can do and should persevere in the hope my body adapts. As I've already rejected the first 2, I'm in the mind of persevering but I'm getting worse. I'm taking a lot of other medication for the pain. Pregabalin, duloxetine, paracetamol and ibuprofen. The first two at maximum doses and the second two after the injection for 5 days. I'm finding it difficult to know what is making me feel this way. Before diagnosis I never took tablets, now I'm over 20 a day at times. Has anyone else had problems with plegridy? I don't want to give up as I'm running out of options. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    • Plegridy v Avonex

      Good afternoon everyone,   I haven't been here for a while, I hope you are all doing okay. I wondered if anyone here has changed from avonex to plegridy - and what their experience has been? I have been on avonex for 10 years but because I am taking methotrexate for rheumatoid arthritis, I can't take any of the oral DMT's. I thought plegridy might be a better option. Any thoughts?   Many thanks, Catherine
