Here is my question:
After taking Rebif for 25 years with no new exacerbations for many years do I need to keep taking after I turn age 65. I am 64 years old now.
I do not have enough information about your MS to answer your question. There is certainly nothing magical about turning 65. If you believe you have benefitted from the Rebif over the years then there is little reason to stop taking it. By the way, Rebif has only been available for 14 years in the US (approved in 2012).
