  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Can’t tell
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 20 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I developed lumps/knots under my skin that may not have been related to the Copaxone. After ultra-sound and MRI, no conclusive diagnoses for the knots. I was so tired of the daily shots and the sudden development of the knots I decided to stop the treatment.
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 20 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I get tired of taking this shot every day, however, I have had no major flare ups since beginning this medication. Very soon after I began this medication I lost 15 pounds and that was an unexpected benefit. In the beginning and for six or eight months the injection site itched and nearly drove me nuts. I ignored the itching and one day realized the itching had stopped.

Advice & Tips: get your veins ballooned... because you have CCSVI... it was very ez with no problems... and even though one-third of people treated don't get symptom relief, like myself, it's still worth a shot and at least you will have better blood flow to your lesions among other things, and this is the main point in getting venoplasty...
