I've been told by shared solutions + neurologist that copaxone will begin to work after 9 or so months of continuous use, however, i think i can confidently say after 8 months 2 weeks it has officially begun working.
The reason i say that is i had a relapse Aug 2009-November 2009, December 2009 - Jan 2010(diagnosed, copaxy), February - March 2010, May 2010... and no relapse since!
Next week will be my 4th relapse free month - which is exciting stuff I think.
I just wanted to post this to let ppl know that it does take a good while for 'copaxy' to work, so please do stick to it even if you seem to feel worse. Even continuting to take it for a total duration of a year to see if it truly takes effect. I was planning on stopping as i thought it wasnt working, but after weeks of begging by fiance, i decided to hold on that little bit longer - and it was well worth the daily pain
Don;t get me wrong, i went 2 weeks without taking it thinking it wasnt working - and i actually felt worse. Could have been psychological, however, i felt as though my symptoms had all returned until i returned to it.
Dont give up kids
