I have heard of possibly treating unrelenting fatigue with a one-time treatment with one of the interferon drugs. What's the scoop on that? Any other insights on debilitating fatigue - I've already eliminated carbs from my diet and eat really clean... Thanks!
A single treatment with interferon will not benefit MS related fatigue. If this were the case, patients would be pounding on our doors to get started on interferons. In most cases interferon treatment transiently increases the level of fatigue. Long term treatment with interferons may benefit fatigue, but the data on this topic is inconclusive and not overwhelming.
In the meantime, please search on 'fatigue' in the upper right corner of this page and you will see many blogs and resources regarding fatigue. We also have an entire page on this website regarding fatigue READ MORE
