Been on Copaxone since 2002 and have had only minor flare ups until now (March 2008). The only problem I have had is the same as most people on Copaxone, the injection site reactions. Sweeling, dents and scar tissue. I went 4 years before I got the Auto-injection kit and it has worked great! Just hate taking a shot everyday. All in all if your Neurologist suggest the drug give it a try as it has w ... Show Full Comment

I was on Rebif for 9 months and had a terrible time with headaches and the flu symtoms, not to mention the site reactions.

It does seem to be the best going right now.

The only side effect i've experienced is the injection site reaction of redness, swelling and itching which disappears after 2-3 days. I recommend massaging the injection site 24-48 hours after injection; this really helps with reducing hardening of th ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been on Copaxone for over a year now and regardless of the difficulties I've experienced during injections, this drug simply works great! The bad reactions I have experienced injecting this drug are to be honest, substantially longer than claimed by the drug's maker. 45 minutes of extreme heat and hard muscle spasms followed by 45 minutes of uncontrollable shivering. And while these ... Show Full Comment

I have no complaint about this drug other than it is a painful injection to have to take daily. If only we could take this every other day :)
