I will be 64 in November and this year I will have been on Avonex 7 years. My doctor wants me to continue on Avonex, I would like to stop taking this or any other DM drug because of side effects. I am certain these drugs are not tested on the older population, but worry about the "what if I did stop, and will my MS get worse quicker" or "what am I doing to my body being on this long term, plus hate doing the weekly shots"
Are there any other seniors out there in a similar situation and have you stopped taking your Avone? Please reply with, Your age, how long you took Avonex, and how long ago did you stop taking it? Did your symptoms get worse or are you staying stable?
I did try LDN with no success.
