What is PLEGRIDY?

PLEGRIDY® (peginterferon beta-1a) is a prescription medicine used to treat relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS), to include clinically isolated syndrome, relapsing-remitting disease, and active secondary progressive disease, in adults.

It is not known if PLEGRIDY is safe and effective in people under 18 or over 65 years of age.

How should I use PLEGRIDY?Icon of an injection Every two weeks

  • Use PLEGRIDY exactly as your healthcare provider tells you. A healthcare provider should show you how to inject your PLEGRIDY before you use it for the first time.
  • When you use PLEGRIDY for the first time, your healthcare provider may tell you to slowly increase your dose.
  • If you are prescribed PLEGRIDY for injection under the skin (subcutaneous injection):
    • you should use a PLEGRIDY Starter Pack to slowly adjust your dose when you begin treatment.
    • inject PLEGRIDY under the skin of your stomach (abdomen), back of upper arm, or thigh 1 time every 14 days.
  • If you are prescribed PLEGRIDY for injection into the muscle (intramuscular injection):
    • you should use a PLEGRIDY Titration Kit to slowly adjust your dose when you begin treatment.
    • inject PLEGRIDY into your thigh 1 time every 14 days.
  • If your healthcare provider changes where you are injecting PLEGRIDY (under the skin or into the muscle), you do not need to slowly increase your dose again.
  • Change (rotate) the site you choose with each injection to help decrease the chance that you will have an injection site reaction. Do not inject into an area of the body where the skin is irritated, reddened, bruised, infected, or scarred in any way.
  • Always use a new, PLEGRIDY prefilled pen or new, unopened single dose prefilled syringe for each injection.
