How to Use Betaseron
Read the Medication Guide and Instructions for Use provided by your pharmacist before you start using Betaseron and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. If you are using Betaseron at home, learn all preparation and usage instructions from your health care professional. Before using, check Betaseron visually for particles or discoloration. If either is present, do not use the liquid. Learn how to store and discard medical supplies safely. Inject Betaseron under the skin as directed by your doctor, usually every other day. It is best to use Betaseron near bedtime to reduce side effects. Before injecting each dose, clean the injection site with rubbing alcohol. Change the injection site each time to lessen injury under the skin. Do not inject into skin that is red, sore, scarred, or infected. Inject Betaseron under the skin in the thigh, abdomen, buttock, or the back of the upper arm as directed by your doctor, usually every other day. Tell your doctor of any skin reactions that do not go away after a few days. The Dosage of Betaseron is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. To reduce your risk of side effects, your doctor may direct you to start Betaseron at a low dose and gradually increase your dose. Follow your doctor's instructions carefully. Use Betaseron regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time for each scheduled dose. Tell your doctor if your condition gets worse.
Before using interferon, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to products containing human albumin; or if you have any other allergies. Betaseron may contain inactive ingredients (such as latex found in some brands), which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Betaseron, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,bleeding/blood problems, heart problems (such as heart failure, angina, fast/irregular heartbeat), liver disease, mental/mood disorders (such as depression, psychosis, suicidal thoughts), seizure disorder, thyroid disease. Interferon can make you more likely to get infections or may worsen any current infections. Avoid contact with people who have infections that may spread to others (such as chickenpox, measles, flu). Consult your doctor if you have been exposed to an infection or for more details. Tell your health care professional that you are using interferon before having any immunizations/vaccinations. Avoid contact with people who have recently received live vaccines (such as flu vaccine inhaled through the nose). Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). During pregnancy, Betaseron should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is unknown if Betaseron passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you miss a dose of Betaseron, use it as soon as you remember, and ask your doctor or pharmacist right away for a new dosing schedule. Your next injection should be used about 48 hours (2 days) after you actually receive the missed dose. Do not use Betaseron 2 days in a row. Do not double the dose to catch up.
