I have been taking copaxone for almost 6 years and have had no relapses since (although my relapses have been minor with a long period of years in between). I have had no side effects associated with the medication. My only issue is a small lump that appears at the injection site for about 5 days. There has been no bruising or redness at injection sites.

My advice stay on the medication suck it up and do the injections cause it is worth it to slow the disease down. My cousin has MS as well she is ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I took this medication for 10 days. It was my first choice because it sounded effective and the least harmful although I do not like using needles and cringe at the thought. The first day I took the medication I had a burning pain at the injection site, followed by a hard bruised welt that lasted a week. I continued using the medication (having my husband do the injections for me). I found each in ... Show Full Comment
