I have been on copaxone for 11 years. Still walk 3 miles every morning. Still wish they could put it in pill form or in patch form - like the nicotine patch. I have stopped for a few months at a time a couple of times over the years just because get tired of the whole process, but always go back.

It does seem to be the best going right now.

Comment:
I've been using copaxone for seven months and I'm very satisfied. Major improvement was seen on my MRI only after four months of use. 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
