Rebif injection is used to treat patients with multiple sclerosis, a chronic degenerative disease of the brain and spinal cord.
While not a cure, doctors prescribe Rebif to decrease the number of flare-ups and also slow down the occurrence of physical disabilities.
Rebif injection contains the generic ingredient interferon beta-1a, which is a type of medicine called an immunomodulator. Although not completely understood, Rebif is thought to work by changing the way the immune system works, thereby slowing down the body’s attack on the nerves.
Dosage is usually increased gradually to avoid side effects. For patients with relapsing-remitting MS, the recommended dose is 44mcg given three times per week by subcutaneous injection. Your doctor may decide to reduce your dose to 22mcg three times per week if you are not able to tolerate the higher dose.
These may not be all the side effects of Rebif 22mcg.
You must not start treatment with Rebif if you are pregnant. Do not use this medication if you have severe liver disease.
Before you take this medication, tell your doctor if you have cardiac disease, severe renal failure, severe decrease in blood cells, seizure disorders, depression or thyroid problems.
Rebif syringes should be stored refrigerated between 2°C and 8°C. Rebif syringes may be stored for up to one month at room temperature (up to 25°C). Do not freeze.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a life-long disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). In MS, the immune system mistakenly attacks and damages the myelin sheath that covers and protects nerve fibres, which interferes with the communication between your brain and the rest of your body. Eventually, the disease can permanently damage the nerves themselves. Signs of MS vary depending on the amount of nerve damage and which nerves are affected. Symptoms may include tingling, prickling, visual disturbances, muscle weakness, balance problems and fatigue. MS can occur at any age, but is usually diagnosed between the ages of 15 to 40. MS is three times more likely to occur in women as in men and is more common in people of northern European background. This disease is not usually fatal and most people who have MS can expect a normal or near-normal lifespan, thanks to improvements in symptom management and disease-modifying therapies.
