Been on Copax 3 1/2 weeks. Probably doesn't sound like much of an accomplishment to most of you, but I am pleased I am integrating this into my life.
So far, so good, altough I am very fussy about where I inject. Very silly, but I keep color coded real size maps of injections!! Will probably give it up when the sheets are covered
I keep reading on this med and can't avoid thinking very seriously about going EOD. I first wanted to do 6 full months before reducing. Neuro is not too found of idea of going EOD. He seems to like taking meds as intended, altough he wasn't pushing for me to go on DMD's. I don't seem to have a very active disease (...so far, thank God
), and he's anxiously waiting for BG 12. His view is to try to maintain myself on Copax waiting for that other med.
I have read abstracts for the 2 Fletcher studies on EOD dosage, and they look OK, altough small studies. Also read the abstract for the TEVA 40 mg 3X/week study, but since that dosage doesn't seem to be in the near future, no point waiting for that. And I certainly won't be injecting myself twice! Also, no need to tell you what Shared Solutions' view is! They do admit that the EOD pattern is very common tough.
I have searched through past posts and found quite a few here are taking that reduced dosage. I anyone feels like posting on that subject, it would be great. More than one head is always better.
