Does anyone else on Copaxone have problems with frequent viral or bacterial infections?
I've been dx MS 12 years. I was on Rebif over 5 years. After 2 years on Rebif my lymphocyte and neutrophil counts dropped and I got infection after infection - 12 per year. My MS was worse on Rebif as well, I got 4 relapses per year.
Then I started Copaxone, I've done very well, MS-wise on it. I'm now on it nearly 6 years but I am starting to get infection after infection on it again. I had a low blood count last year. I have had 2 viral infections in the last month and in the last year I've had over 6 antibiotics for bacterial infections.
RR-MS dx 1998 and Coeliac dx 2003
