I was hesitant to start this medication and did not like the idea of injections. Have to say I've had very few problems and am in much better shape than I was before--only one very minor relapse in over 3 years. A few side effects have occurred but nothing I can't deal with. You have to take the med as directed and take care of yourself in other aspects of your life, too!

i have been injecting this now for 4 years and i have not had a relapse since, but i find the new way of mixing it quite stressful air bubbles get trapped and it is prone to falling apart.
