Those living with multiple sclerosis (MS) and their loved ones may be facing a lot of uncertainty during this pandemic. We are committed to keeping the communities we serve updated with information that could help inform health decisions. At this time, we recognize that there are many questions regarding the impact of the COVID-19 on MS patients, or regarding this virus and any specific MS disease-modifying therapy (DMT). We are actively engaging the global MS community to learn more about COVID-19, as well as any potential considerations for AUBAGIO® (teriflunomide).

AUBAGIO may stay in your blood for up to 2 years after you stop taking it. Your healthcare provider can prescribe a medicine that can remove AUBAGIO from your blood quickly.
Before taking AUBAGIO, talk with your healthcare provider if you have: liver or kidney problems; a fever or infection, or if you are unable to fight infections; numbness or tingling in your hands or feet that is different from your MS symptoms; diabetes; serious skin problems when taking other medicines; breathing problems; or high blood pressure. Your healthcare provider will check your blood cell count and TB test before you start AUBAGIO.
