Switching over to Copaxone

Postby siren » Tue Sep 19, 2006 2:06 am

Hi Everyone,

My neurologist wants me to consider switching from Rebif to Copaxone.
I've been on Rebif since 25 Jan 2005. I was doing good on it for a while but now keep getting frequent relaps (on the optics) and the time between two relaps is getting shorter. That's why my neurologist wants me to consider switching to another immunomodulator for MS. Furthermore I think Rebif is making me losing my hair. Any advises/information that you can give me before I make the decision...?

Thanks

For what it's worth-I've been on Copaxone for 3 years after switching from Betaseron. Have had no relapses. Have some indententations at injection sites, but don't experience the burning, itching that some people have with Copaxone. Overall, I have been happy with it, given the choices currently available.
