MS is hard enough to deal with. I dont need shots making me 1000 times worse. I would love some input.
So, why not switch to copaxone? It's a fully recognized MS DMD, but not an interferon, so the side-effect profile is very different, if not entirely absent (as in my case). I've been injecting it daily for over 12 years now. I had previously used betaseron and rebif, before switching to copaxone.
Interferons are not for everyone.
Oh, and although copaxone is injected daily, the injections are subcutaneous, not intramuscular, as with avonex. The shot takes about as much time and thought as brushing your teeth.
