My insurance company will no longer pay for Betaseron so my doctor is switching me to Extavia. Does the larger bore needle used with Extavia hurt more? Is Extavia given in the same injection sites? I liked using the MyBeta app with Betaseron. I guess I can still use it with Extavia.
Did you call the company that makes beta, they send it to you if your insurance doesn't cover it. Whatever the right treatment is for us we should have access to it!!
I was on Extavia (I JUST stopped it two days ago) and it left big red marks for WEEKS. It made me dizzy and it only got worse over time. It got to the point where I was so dizzy it made me vomit. Before Extavia I was on Copaxone and Avonex. The Extavia needle hurt more than the others. I liked using my hip area since it was less sensitive and I had more cushion there.
I've been trying to find one in this area , so far no luck
@A MyMSTeam Member, I think you should see a physical therapist and explore using bands or whatever he or she recommends.
