Guiding you along the way

If the idea of injecting yourself makes you nervous, you should know that we’re here to help you confidently and successfully start treatment. Your ActiveNurse™ is an MS-trained nurse, ready to make the process as simple and convenient for you as possible.

And the support doesn’t stop after the first injection. ActiveNurses are available to provide the extra help you may need, free of charge—now and at any time while you are taking AVONEX.

ActiveNurses can provide:

  • Phone counseling, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
    An ActiveNurse can provide answers to your questions about MS and about AVONEX whenever you need them.
  • Personal injection training in the comfort of your own home
    An ActiveNurse will guide you and your care partner through your initial stages of AVONEX treatment and the injection process. Proper training and guidance can help you get the most out of your therapy, whether you’re titrating with AVONEX Prefilled Syringe or using AVONEX PEN®.

    Your ActiveNurse can even come back to your house to provide additional training.

“It’s amazing to be able to positively influence patients at such a critical time. Sometimes they feel like the world is crumbling around them. As an ActiveNurse, my goal is to help them put it in perspective and empower them to take charge of their therapy.”
Anne I., ActiveNurse
