    Hello Biju,

    Here in the US we have 13 FDA approved medications to treat MS: http://www.nationalmssociety.org/Treating-MS/Medications#section-1. I'm not sure what is available to your brother in India, but typically if someone here is not doing well on Avonex we would try a stronger oral therapy or even one of the infusions.

    All the best,
    Stephanie
