  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • Had Respiratory Distress, coughing, clogged nasal passages, an extreme skin rash and problems sleeping.
    After telling my neurologist these symptoms worsen after I get a needle of Rebif he didn't really believe me because I was taking Rebif for about 8 years with no to little side effects. I was admitted to the hospital for Respiratory Distress and taken off Rebif. I still have cold like symptoms and my white blood cells have increased over the 2 1/2 month I have been taken off Rebif. My doctors and I are still trying to definitely confirm the reaction was to Rebif.
    I have had numerous blood tests, EKG, Pulmonary tests, allergy tests and chest x-rays.
