- 44 mcg autoinjectors have a teal green injector button
- 22 mcg autoinjectors have a yellow injector button
Titration Pack for 44 mcg prescribed dose
Only prefilled syringes can be used to titrate to a 22 mcg prescribed dose.
You should only use Rebif Rebidose after you have received proper training from a medical professional. An MS LifeLines Nurse may be able to provide injection training to you in the comfort of your home. Call 1-877-447-3243 to learn more.
