Peginterferon beta-1a may be used for adults with relapsing forms of MS, in which interferon beta-1a is pegylated to extend its half-life which allows less frequent dosing. It is administered once every 14 days via subcutaneous route.
Advice & Tips:
With not taking this med but once every two weeks I did miss taking one does by two days once. That just means that I had to move the day of my shot out two days from now on. Not a big deal. These needles are like the needles they use for Diabe tics and are so small that they don't hurt at all. Also a Medicare will let you do these at home. So I give them to myself and the spots to give them are 6 instead of just the top of your thighs so you don't get needle fatigue. Love it.
