Hi Zal

One of the major side effects of all the interfurons is depression. You obviousbly feel that this is true for you . That been the case you have to talk to your neuro about other options for Disease modifying therapies (DMT's).

Copaxane is the only injectible open to you as all the other are interfurons of some sort . There is tysabri as well as some of the newer oral meds to consider as well.

Talk to your neuro and come up with a new plan that suits you as depression caused by meds is something you do not have to live with.
