I was dignosed with MS a little over two years ago my dr just proscribed me with Avonex and said i shouldnt get pregnant on this medication... My husband and I are not concerned with another child right now because we just had our first about 3 weeks ago but we did plan to have another in a few years... I wanna know if anyone has stoped taking this medication in order to have a child and what the results were for themselves and the child. Please help my baby girl is my whole world and i really wanna do whatever is healtest for me so that i can be here for her as long as i can be but id love to try for a sibling for her ... one day... !!
I personally have not stopped my avonex but. a good friend has everyone is different but she wishes she didn't ,she suffered severe mood swings depression spasticity leg restlessness and a severe relapse the neurologist did not recommend this while also saying the severity of symptoms will depend on each inderviduals case ect:how long you have been on the medication how progressed your ms is how your body deals with any sudden changes not only in ms but any sudden stoppage of medication. Good luck I hope I've been some help just be carefull and alert Paul
