The 3-Step Start

Getting started on treatment is one of the most important decisions you will make. After all, treatment with AVONEX has been proven to help delay physical disability progression and reduce flare-ups. With AVONEX, we will be there with you every step of the way, ensuring that the initiation process is as easy as possible.

Step 1: Get your prescription

Once we receive your START form, you're on your way to treating your relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS) with AVONEX—the only MS treatment that has both been proven to start working as early as the first attacka as well as slow the progression of physical disability. AVONEX does all this with once-a-week dosing. And to help you get started even faster, you can receive a free month of AVONEX with the First Month Free Program.

Get insurance assistance

Call 1-800-456-2255 to see how we can help you with your financial needs.

Get injection training
Step 3: Get injection training

Success with AVONEX starts with proper injection technique. You should know that we're here to help you confidently and successfully start treatment.
