I hate taking the shots everyday but at least it's not as painful as the deep tissue shots. I was taking Avonex but the side effects were horrific and i was experiencing depression/mood swings. I tolerate this medication much better but it does give me some serious headaches. My doctor says they will get better. Lets hope so.
