Another Sucky Sunday with An Avonex Hangover

Goat Turds!!!!! That's what I feel like........My gosh I shivered like a dog poopin' razor blades today after that Avonex..........And speaking of goats and dogs, the darned little bugger goats broke loose again today and Steve had the pleasure of rangling them. Will try and catch culprits in the act on video for all of you to enjoy. Devilish little critters, they are........Still took the time to go out and enjoy warmer breezy air and outdoor critters this afternoon, but short lived and will gratefully crawl into warm bed with valuim tonight.



Graphically delightful...I think? LOL

Sorry to hear about your shivering razor pooping time...that truely does suck. Be better soon!

Hi Callie:

A former coworker of mine takes Avonex and suffers similar side effects that you describe.

I told her to ask her doc if she can take NyQuil CAPSULES (only caps, not liquid) four hours before her Saturday night shot in the hope that her Sunday wouldn't be a wash out for her.

She has been using this for about a year now and can't believe docs don't offer it as a relief of symptoms.

Ask your doc if you can take them to deal with the aches, pains and flu symptoms of the Avonex. If for some reason NyQuil doesn't agree with you, check out other OTC for similar remedies.

Just a thought, Anne

Thanks Anne, Really it's my own fault. I take the shot sunday morning an hour before I leave work and head home. I usually take 800mg of Ibuprofen and a valuim to knock myself out for the sleep, however, I blew it off and suffered the consequences. I have no right to bitch about it. I stay away from NyQuil stuff, because certain antihistimines, although great for sleep, last a real long time on me and leave me in a fog for a day or two. Thanks though for the advice. Have the Neuro appointment tomorrow, so I'll ask about options. If I would remember to d what I need to do before I sleep it off, perhaps some brain matter to fill in the holes....LOL
