Comment:
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.

I have been taking this medication for over 16 years. I would not change it for another drug. I do not want to fix something that is not broken. The first 5 years are definitely the worst but my symptoms have decreased dramatically concerning severity and longevity.
