I started Avonex 14 yrs ago, at that time I was told to have the injection in the buttocks which was very convenient as my husband could do this. 10 yrs ago I was told by a help-line that Avonex should never be administered in the buttocks, arms and legs only, which is less convenient as it means going to a health centre. Now at my health centre a new nurse tells me that it is perfectly ok to have the injection in the buttocks and that is where she administers to other patients. Please help me clear this up. Thanking you in advance. Eileen Lincoln.
