One Click, Once a Week

There is an easier way to take your once-a-week AVONEX

I have been using the Avonex prefilled syringe, an IM injection, for over 10 years as treatment for Multiple Sclerosis (MS). I dreaded giving myself the injection. I would always sit and anticipate the pain of the needle being pushed into my leg. This injecting never got easier.

I heard about the new Avonex Pen a while back and waited to try it until it was out for awhile. I finally decided it was time for a change. The Avonex Pen is a prefilled, single-use autoinjector that lets you inject your treatment with a single click. The needle is covered and half the length of the standard needle for the Avonex prefilled syringe.
~easier to use  ~reduced pain  ~reduced injection anxiety

I am so glad I made the change. I have found the the Avonex Pen is so much easier to use than the Avonex prefilled syringe. I really like the hidden needle. This reduces my needle anxiety.

Ready to make the switch to the Avonex Pen? Call your doctor and ask for your prescription to be changed.
