Indications

BETASERON® (interferon beta-1b) is a prescription medicine used to reduce the number of relapses in people with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS). This includes people who have had their first symptoms of multiple sclerosis and have an MRI consistent with multiple sclerosis. BETASERON will not cure MS but may decrease the number of flare-ups of the disease.

Dosing Information

You may be started on a lower dose when you first start taking BETASERON. Your healthcare provider will tell you what dose of BETASERON to use.15

If a dose of BETASERON is missed, then it should be taken as soon as you remember or are able to take it. You should not take BETASERON on two consecutive days. The next injection should be taken about 48 hours (two days) after that dose. If you accidentally take more than your prescribed dose or take it on two consecutive days, you should call your healthcare provider immediately.4

Titration, BETASERON® (interferon beta-1b)

Titration

Your doctor will tell you what dose of BETASERON to use when you begin. This process is called titration. Titration means increasing the dosage over time so your body can adjust.

For titration schedules, refer to your Injection Training Guide , or ask your healthcare provider.

Do not change your dose without talking with your doctor.
