My question is, has anyone had the reaction of heart racing, b/p going up, etc? I've had this happen 2 1/2 times in 3 months. The 1/2 time, it started and all of a sudden stopped.
I took Copaxone for my first year after diagnosis. The first six months were great, and then I started having the bad post injection stuff.. Just like you mentioned. NOT fun..
The first time it happened, my hubby had 9-1 dialed. It was scary. After the initial heart racing, flushing, etc., went away, then about an hour later I would get the chills so severely that nothing would stop them. I just had to ride them out. With time, they became more frequent, and I eventually stopped taking it.
I called Shared Solutions, and they said that I was kind of a severe case with regards to the reactions (of course,
can't do anything in moderation!!)
But with regards to its effectiveness, I didn't have any complaints.
