copaxone injections 3 x/week?

Postby birdistheword » Sun Sep 19, 2010 11:36 am

Hello everyone! I'm wondering if anyone else has heard that using copaxone 3 times per week is just as effective as injecting every day. I heard this, and quickly dropped 4 of my weekly injections (horrible site reactions, blah blah blah...), but I've always wondered if anyone else has heard this same thing? Thanks in advance for any input! :D

I've heard of people taking it every other day. I started Copaxone in 2008, when I first began I took it every day for the first 6 months. Now I take it about 3 times a week and I'm doing fine. I had my last MRI in June and I don't have any activity or lesions. The drug companies don't encourage this though but it's your body. Only you know what's best.

My Neuro told me I could take it 3 times a week, that there was a study recently done on it. He didn't go into detail tho.

My neuro recommended every other day when I saw him last year as well. But since I've been doing well on it for the last five years taking it every day, I never tried every other day.
