When you're first diagnosed with relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS), it can be hard to know what to do next. First, remember to give yourself the time to adjust to the news. It's a lot to take in, and it's normal to have concerns.

When you're ready, you and your doctor should start to think about which MS treatment is right for you. Many experts agree that treatment should start as soon as possible, because MS can progress even if you don't have any symptoms. In this section, you'll learn about AVONEX, a treatment for relapsing MS that can help decrease the number of flare-ups and delay physical disability progression. In addition, AVONEX has a well understood safety profile that has been studied in 2 well-controlled phase III clinical trials.
