Who Can Benefit From Injections of Betaseron Solution?

Betaseron Solution is prescribed for those that have relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, the most common form of MS. This medical condition involves the degeneration of the nerves in your brain and spinal cord. There is no cure for MS, but injections of Interferon Beta 1b can help decrease the progression of the disease and reduce the number of relapses and their severity that you experience.

How Interferon Beta 1b Works

Betaseron Solution acts like beta-interferon, a natural protein in your body that occurs in response to a virus or other initiating factors. It is thought that Interferon Beta 1b helps to boost your immune system and to combat the multiple sclerosis in a number of different ways which include slowing down the destruction of myelin, the insulator for your spinal cord and brain nerve cells. A professional healthcare worker will instruct you or a family member on the correct administration of this injectible medicine that goes just under your skin (subcutaneously).

More About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease where the body's natural immune system eats away at the protective covering of the nerves. This can make communication between the nerves and the brain difficult. As your conditions continues to deteriorate, it can affect your ability to walk or speak. This disease, unfortunately, can be difficult to diagnose in its early stages because the symptoms often disappear for long periods of time.

Before Betaseron Solution is Prescribed to You

Inform your doctor about all prescription and non-prescription medications you currently take or use, as well as any herbal remedies and vitamin supplements, to avoid potentially dangerous drug interactions. You should not administer Betaseron Solution for children or adolescents under the age of 18 that have severe depression, uncontrolled epilepsy, un-treated liver disease, or are pregnant or nursing. Used syringes/needles or other injection material should be disposed of in a proper ‘sharps’ container that should be free of charge from your local pharmacy, then returned for disposal.

Betaseron Solution Precautions

If you are not comfortable injecting Betaseron Solution, have a family member or caregiver learn how to properly administer the injection. All medications should be kept out of children’s reach and never shared with anyone else. Do not start any new meds or stop current ones without talking to your doctor to confirm any possible adverse interactions there might be while on Betaseron Solution.

  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
