Interferon beta-1b is a prescription drug that is licensed for the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS). It is injected just under the skin every other day. Studies show that people who took the medication had fewer MS exacerbations and had significantly fewer lesions after taking interferon beta-1b for two years. Potential side effects of interferon beta-1b include flu-like symptoms, weakness, and headaches.
- Skin reaction at the injection site (such as redness, pain, or burning)
- Flu-like symptoms (such as fever, chills, or muscle aches).
