Rebif 22mcg update

Hi everyone..

I haven't been posting for a while..

Well have been on 22mcg dose since 6th March and OMG... what a change from 8.8 mcg.. Some days I felt like I was going to die.

That's how dramatic the side effects were.. I usually take the injections after 9.30 pm.. I just had the last of the 22 mcg dose, but the side effects only start at about 4 am next day..

So I take 2 500mg paracetamol before I go to bed.

The main side effects that I can remember.
  • Tingling all over my arm
  • goosebumps
  • shivering like i have hypothermia
  • hallucinations (yh.. its true.. i thought i was getting attacked by snakes almost on all of the injection day)
  • fatigue
  • excruciating eye pain on the day after
  • really bad fatigue
From 20th March (day after tomorrow) I start the 44 mcg.. AAARRRGGGHHH.. I am scared..!!!

I will let you know soon.. OK?..
