I have been taking Copaxone for three years now. I have no new lesions and no excerbations. I don't like the redness, itching and brusing at the injection site but I think that's a small price to pay for the effectiveness.

I have used Copaxone since July of 2000 with no problems other than a small rash or swelling at the injection site. Comparing my Jan 08 MRI to my July 2000 MRI showed absolutely no change. I think my stength and energy level have actually improved. The drug doens't work for everyone asd I have a friend that feels it hasn't helped him at all. I would recommend trying it, howver
