I don't like the way the injection sites become, sore, red or bruised looking. They also become "dent" looking spots after awhile, they don't go away completely. However, I love the results of the treatment.

I am SO not satisfied with this powerful drug that "they" tell me I need to take. How do we know what we are exactly putting in our bodies? To me its all a scam for TEVA to make money off scaring us into thinking we need it. I have been doing accupunture for 10 years and have had wonderful success-along with all the POSITIVE side effects. We'll have a class action suit before you know it!I have ha...

This WAS my M.S medicine. However after using this for a few years, and dealing with the small side effects.( itching, redness, chest pain) which i was told was normal.

I have had m.s. for 30 years and was on Avonex since it came available . I used several others but I kept coming back to Avonex. That medication was not controlling my worsening symptoms so my Doctor went back to the basics. Copaxone has worked well for me in treating the symptoms. I do get a lump at the site which last several days but does not hurt. Itching on my arms is common. For me it is hard to reach my back to rotate to that site. Overall it keeps my ms from worsening. I am satisfied with this medication except for giving myself a shot 3 times per week.

I really like the Copaxone 20mg injections. I stopped the medication for a pregnancy last year and the doctor recommended I go to the 40mg dose upon starting back. I have terrible site reactions with the 40 including bruising, lumps, stinging, etc. I will be returning to the Copaxone 20mg (looked into generic and not impressed with the reviews). Fortunately, Shared Solutions will be helping with my copay, bringing it down to $35/month. Not bad for a drug that costs $60k/year.
