Injection wise I've done Avonex into muscle once a week
Used auto injector ... then Copaxone 3 times a week subcutaneous so not as deep didn't use auto injection for that one
It's very intimidating and a lot to comprehend at first
Nurses come and do training with you
It's helpful to have someone with you if you can
Good luck to you

What ever you choose. Watch for the side effects as your on it.

I'm on betaseron every 2days starting my 4th yr. Contemplating quitting it due to not watching the side effects over time, had all of them.
