Why did I chose Copaxone? Five years ago when I was dx talked it over with the doctor, did research on the internet, talked with my Sister. You see my Sister is a doctor and has MS and had been on Copaxone for six years when I was dx.
The big thing for me was of course my Sister was on it and it has very few side effects.
Second part of the story was I wanted to fight MS with the Best Bet Diet, Vitamin D and Fish oil. I knew my Wife would not be happy with me if I did not go on a drug.
So I did all three Copaxone, Diet, and Supplements. Got my Vitamin D checked in the beginning and it was very low. After much discussion with my Sister I got her to get it checked and it was very low.
So five years later, I have been healthy no MS symptoms, still on Copaxone only missed half a dozen shots in five years, still on the diet still taking 6,000 iu's of vitamin d a day.
My sister is doing very well, no MS problems, still on Copaxone for 11 years now, takes vitamin d but does not follow the Best Bet Diet.
