I have been on Betaseron for 12 years and have not had an episode since my dx. So frustrated.
Extavia is the same as Betaseron. It is not 'generic' it just has a different label and a lower price. My insurance did the same. Anyone on Betaseron was switched to Extavia. Novartis bought the rights to do this so that when Gilenya was going for approval, the company would show that they already had an MS drug on the market. I actually heard this directly from a Betaseron Drug Rep.
I always had my copay covered from beraseron co. And they will cover 12k for me...that is about 3 months of Betaseron. Really want to switch to pill but doctor says no...extavia sounds like an artificial sweetner!
