Avonex, which is generically known as Interferon beta-1a or Interferon beta-1-alpha, is drug meant to slow the progress of multiple sclerosis. It is currently the most popular drug for treating MS in the United States: it accounts for about 40% of the market share. Avonex is manufactured and marketed by Biogen Idec Inc. Although there is no cure for multiple sclerosis, there are ways to treat it and make the debilitating condition somewhat more manageable. However, Avonex has some serious side effects that are a cause for concern.

Both the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Biogen have issued serious warnings about Avonex side effects. The most serious side effects that occur as a result of taking this drug are related to the liver. Avonex can cause liver failure or other serious liver injuries. Avonex also has other side effects. A more complete list of Avonex adverse effects includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Poor results on Liver Function Tests

  • Liver Injury

  • Liver Failure

  • Flu symptoms

  • Seizures

  • Blood Cell Abnormalities

  • Depression

Because Avonex doesn’t actually cure multiple sclerosis, many patients taking it choose to discontinue use because their quality of life has not improved. The side effects are so serious that many prefer to avoid this treatment altogether. Furthermore, the cost of Avonex is very high; a monthly supply of this drug can cost thousands of dollars.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured as a result of taking Avonex, you might be entitled to compensation by filing a lawsuit with the help of an Avonex law firm.
