Has anyone been on plegridy yet? Would really like to hear how people are doing on it, what kinds of side effects are going on? ## Hello, Courtney! How are you? Has your doctor recommend this for you? Plegridy is listed by the FDA as being Peginterferon Beta-1a, it's used to treat relapsing MS. It was approved in August of this year, 2014.

Has anyone taken this, yet?
