AVONEX PEN®

Getting started:
Proper training is essential

Before your first AVONEX injection, set up a training session with your healthcare provider. You can also get training from an AVONEX ActiveNurseTM to help you inject correctly each time. Because AVONEX is given into the muscle (intramuscularly), it uses a different injection technique than other injectable MS treatments, which are given under the skin (subcutaneously). So proper training is essential, even if you’re already used to giving yourself injections.


One Click. AVONEX PEN.
AVONEX PEN is a single-use, prefilled autoinjector. It injects with just one click, using a covered needle that’s half the length of the standard needle for AVONEX Prefilled Syringe.

Review the Video Injection Guide and Injection Guide PDF below before your training session with your healthcare provider or an AVONEX ActiveNurse. The guides will show you how to:

  • Store AVONEX and use it properly
  • Prepare your AVONEX PEN
  • Take your injection
  • Dispose of used AVONEX PEN

In addition, you should review the Instructions for Use in your AVONEX PEN package.

After your training, you can review both guides and the Instructions for Use again during the injection process—whether you need to review the entire process or just want to refresh your memory about a few details.

If you have questions about injecting once-a-week AVONEX, contact your ActiveNurse 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-800-456-2255.
