Have been using Betaseron for 11 years. In that time I have had no new symptoms and only very mild symptoms that were present before Betaseron usage. Bladder problems have increased slightly.

I have been taking Betaseron since 1996 and I have only had 3 relapses of MS. It has been wonderful and I strongly recommend treatment with Betaseron. It has kept me walking.
