Running out of injection sites

A board to discuss the Multiple Sclerosis modifying drug Copaxone

Running out of injection sites

Postby annad » Wed Apr 21, 2010 5:35 pm

Hi to all!
Has anyone had to stop using copaxone because they ran out of injection sites?
I am running out of 'fat' to inject into and I don't get the full amount injected into me. I've also stopped using my arms as a site as it's just too darn painful.
Not sure if it's doing anything for me anyway.
thanks!

My neurologist told me, that in 4 – 5 months, Copaxone is going to be available in pills. Until then … hang in there.

Zelda, If that was true you could buy copaxone now. It is made up of 4 amino acids that are readily available in all health food stores! so I don't think they can make copaxone an oral pill. However there are oral pills of other drugs coming this May.

Maybe you know something that my neurologist doesn’t? In that case, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Hi Annad
have you got a low BMI? I was very thin for a while when on the Best Bet Diet and I was working out a lot. I ran out of viable injection sites. I know it's a solution not many would be comfortable with but I put on half a stone and suddenly it became an awful lot easier to keep on injecting.

Have you tried adjusting the depth of the needle? That helped me immensely!
