Rebif® Rebidose® (interferon beta-1a)
New Rebif Rebidose is the latest way to take Rebif. This new option gives you a portable, preassembled, prefilled single-use autoinjector and provides you and your doctor the flexibility of 2 dosing options—44 mcg and 22 mcg.
You still have the option of choosing the prefilled syringe and reusable Rebiject II® autoinjector.
- Rebif is shipped to you in prefilled, preassembled, ready-to-use syringes, so no premixing or assembly is required.
- With Rebiject II and the new Rebif Rebidose, the needle stays covered before and after injection process.
With Rebif, fewer injections are needed annually compared with Betaseron® (interferon beta-1b) or Extavia® (interferon beta-1b).
Rebif may cause redness, pain, or swelling at the place where an injection was given. Some patients have developed skin infections or areas of severe skin damage (necrosis) requiring treatment by a health care provider. If one of your injection sites becomes swollen and painful or the area looks infected and it doesn't heal within a few days, you should call your health care provider. For more information, please see medication guide.
