    gkygrl evaluated Copaxone

    • StartedAug 8, 2002
    • Dosage40 mg 3 times a week
    • Effectiveness Can’t tell (for multiple sclerosis)
    • Side effects Moderate
    • Adherence Always
    • Burden Somewhat hard to take
    • Cost< $25 monthly
    • Advice & TipsMy initial injection from two days ago is still a welt and itchy (on my abdomen). Gave my new shot in the arm using the Autoject and preceded by a hot compress. That seems to have made a nice difference with itching and welt. Will have to see how things look the day after. The autoject was actually better than I thought. I used a depth of "4" and it seemed to really work.

    • Advice & TipsI have started the Copaxone 40mgs 3X a week injection and this will be a lifesaver for me. I also used some Benadryl cream after the injection and this helped with the site injection welt I typically get. Remarkable results using that cream. Wish I would have known earlier! I have to go on a DMD after my last relapse. Don't want any more issues.
