MSsymptoms: Rebif Lifelines for New & Former Patients

LifelineMS Lifelines called me last week to check on my well-being. It has been a long time since I have taken Rebif. As it turns out Rebif patients, current and past, qualify for the Rebif MS Lifelines services. So what does that mean to those eligible?

The Rebif Support Center provides:
1 – Information on general MS-related questions
2 – Nurses by phone 7 days per week from 9 am – 10 pm eastern standard time
3 – Personal support – someone to talk to about life issues
4 – Assistance to start or restart Rebif
5 – Financial assistance to obtain Rebif
6 – Free drugs based on eligibility

Call 877-447-3243 for the Rebif Support Center – MS Lifelines or visit Departments include: nursing, patient support, reimbursements, and alternate funding. The website has some great information for MS patients. Instructional videos on Rebif injections can be found on

Rebif is an injection three times per week. When I began it years ago my MS was out-of-control. Rebif did make me feel like I had the flu and got progressively worse with time. That said, the effectiveness was incredible slowing down my progression considerably. Fewer attacks means less disability down the road. I would take Rebif again if I needed to.
