  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 0.3 mg every other day
Advice & Tips: Dosing interrupted on doctor's advice during chemo therapy (Taxotere) because both drugs suppress the immune system.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Headaches, Injection site redness

  • side effects
    Mild (Headaches)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 0.3 mg every other day
Advice & Tips: Prepping and giving shots myself (with auto injector) is easy even with my tremors. I use and rotate only the front 12 sites. Sometimes I hardly feel the shot; sometimes it feels like a bee sting; once in awhile a little blood surfaces. I typically get mild headaches on my off day - easily managed with Advil - no other side effects. It's nice that free sharps disposal is available in my town.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Headaches, Injection site redness

  • side effects
    None
  • Adherence

  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 0.3 mg every other day
Advice & Tips: After I learned how to give myself the injections it has been smooth. I do use a shot device so I don't have to look at the needle going into my body. I just have to remember to take it every other day, and that took some time, but now it is just part of my routine. I am conscious about taking it because I is told it would slow the progression of the disease.

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Multiple Sclerosis)
  • side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 0.3 mg every other day
Advice & Tips: I've been taking Betaseron for almost a decade and it seems to work; I haven't gotten worse or required a hospital visit. I had flu-like symptoms in the first several months I took it and maybe once a year since. I bruise in the injection spots, occasionally and sometimes the medicine burns going in. The autoject device is good to get familiar with in case your significant other or caretaker is not available to deliver it to you. One thing I noticed is that I haven't caught the flu since going on Betaseron. Since 2003 or so, Betaseron does not require refrigeration and that was a welcome change.

Dosage: 0.75 mg every other day
Advice & Tips: Today was injection # 21. I still do the same things as with the other times. 2 Aleve 1 hour before, massage site gently after injection and put on a little benadryl anti itch cream or bacitracin. Take 2 Aleve the day after. So far, so good. Only 2 site reactions, # 4 and # 5 on my upper thighs. Slight red water blister like bumps. After 3 days of bacitracin, skin started to look normal, only a slight difference in color, like a black and blue bruise, thats going away now too.

Advice & Tips: giving myself the injection is easier now with the autoinjector- today with be injection # 14, and the 5 the one with the auto injector.
