What is PLEGRIDY?

PLEGRIDY® (peginterferon beta-1a) is a prescription medicine used to treat people with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS).

How do I take PLEGRIDY?Icon of an injection Every two weeks

  • PLEGRIDY is given by injection under the skin (subcutaneous injection) of your stomach (abdomen), back of upper arm, or thigh 1 time every 14 days
  • 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 first use PLEGRIDY, your healthcare provider may tell you to slowly increase your dose so that you can adjust to the effects of PLEGRIDY before using the full dose. You should use a PLEGRIDY starter pack to slowly adjust your dose when you begin treatment
  • 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-use prefilled syringe for each injection
