Thank you Cheer,
When I saw the neuro at Vanderbilt on my yearly check up he offered Copaxone 40 ml. I declined and told him I wanted to stay on 20 ml.
I also see a local neuro with whom I just made an appointment for my yearly check up with her. Her nurse told me that she was switching all Copaxone patients to 40 ml. I again declined. The nurse seemed surprised. I will discuss with doctor when I see her.
Here are my thoughts: I do not want to change anything as I am currently doing quite well and don't want to "upset the apple cart" so to speak
I also wondered about this: 20 ml x 7 days = 140 ml per week
However 40 ml x 3 days = 120 ml per week
Going with that calculation a patient would be getting 20 ml less per week with the new dosing schedule.
I have always been told "don't skip a day". However, I think that may not be as big an issue as Teva has always made it out to be.
I have often skipped a day, perhaps one out of 10 days.
