Default 2 Months And Counting

So I've taken myself off of Avonex.

As I had a dozen doses in stock when my stinking insurance company decided to no longer cover it, I discussed with my doctor a plan to taper off then stop the drug.

I went from weekly doses, to once every 2 weeks, then once every 3 weeks, finally once a month for the remaining stock.

Now off of it entirely, at 60 years old, my neurologist and I are in a "wait and see" mode, not using any disease modifying drugs at all.

So far so good, with no exacerbation.

We'll see as they say...
