Staying on AVONEX

Once you understand your relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS) treatment plan and have learned how to take your medication, you’ve reached your first MS treatment milestone. With the advice of your healthcare provider and the support of family and friends, you have started the process of managing your relapsing MS. And with AVONEX you only have to think about about your treatment once a week.
