Here is My Question:
I was on Avonex for 15 years and Plegridy for 1, is it safe to take a vacation from medications for a month before starting a new drug?
In general a one month off drug is safe, but should be discussed with your clinician as the timing partly depends on which drug someone is switching to – some take longer than others to take effect.
