... One thing I don't know if you considered is ordering the Naprosyn generic from Canada. I don't know what dosage you had been taking, but (for example) you can get the 100 of the 500mg tables for like $25.00. It refers to it both as Naproxen and Naprosin, but I'm sure someone at a place like Canadadrugs.com would be able to help you out.
Additionally - I really think... (3 replies)
... I have been sort of on my own about my MS since I moved away from my neuro in July of last year. I had a quick appointment with another guy last fall to get my prescriptions moved.
But I have a problem!! He wrote a prescription for the Avonex, yes; but he gave me a prescription for Naprosin (?)-- a time-released form of Naproxen. Well, my insurance won't cover that and... (3 replies)
I dont know anyone who had those kind of flu like symptoms honestly and I know hundreds of people on Avonex and Rebif!
The flu like symtoms start about 2 hours after injection. For some people, they feel run down, weak and maybe feverish for an hour or two. With this, comes the sweats - and the chills- but it doesnt last long. To be honest, I used to take one... (5 replies)
I use Rebismart, and yes, it is an autoinjector. To be honest, I prefer to inject with just the syringe, but I also inject in hard to reach places, like the back of my arms, where using the injector makes it MUCH easier to do! It really depends on where Im injecting, whether I use it or not. They will teach you to rotate to different parts of your body and its... (5 replies)
... Hey Neil, Ibuprofin is not Naprosin, the active ingrediant in Aleve..and it will do nothing for pre-shot injections....however, if worse comes to worse- Tylenol is better then nothing.
You got a slight reaction already? Are you titrating? Did you start with 7 mcgs? Or, did they start you full strength? That would be 44 mcgs..it would be incredibly odd for you to have a... (10 replies)
... I'm not on Avonex, I'm having enough fun with the Rebif, but that just sounds crazy.
I do take two aleve an hour before injection, and I leave out my needle for that same amount of time. That SEEMS to be enough for me, but then again, I'm not shooting into muscle. I take two more aleve the next morning at least.
Good luck! (3 replies)
... Thanks! I hadn't thought about Canadain pharmacies...
I did just talk to an Avonex nurse today, though; she said to work up to leaving it out close to 12 hours. The chills and fever are indicating that my body is "saying" the meds are still too cold. As far as the Naproxen, etc., she said Tylenol may not be the choice because acetaminophen has no anti-inflammatory... (3 replies)
