My mother started to take Avonex for multiple sclerosis recently. She is getting fine. She doesn’t have any serious side effects but I’m worried because I heard that this medication can make some damages to liver. Does anybody know something more about this? Is it truth that liver enzymes are elevated with Avonex usage?

I suppose that your mother’s doctor told her that certain blood tests need to be done every three months for the first year to check white blood cell count and liver function. It’s truth that Avonex can elevate levels of liver enzymes which can cause liver damage. Because of that regular monitoring is necessary.
