I agree with the other posters about Wikipedia...it can have inaccurate info there sometimes. I thought the Copaxone idea is that it helps convert T1 cells into T2 cells - anti-inflammatory.
I will want to stop the copaxone at some point as I want to have children (maybe in a year) and I read the study about those that stopped copaxone after 4 and a half years progressed quite rapidly to the ones that stayed on the copaxone and I just started wondering whether those that had stopped it might have been better off never starting it.
THIS HAS NOT HAPPENED ME AT ALL. Everyone is different so what happens to me might not happen to you.
I started Copaxone 7 years ago, took it for 4 years, came off it for 4 months, went back on for a year, came off it for 3 months, went back on it for 6 months, came off it for 15 months, now back on it 17 months. I have an unchanged EDSS. I feel extremely well and my MS has flared up once this year but it resolved 100%, so no progression at all. In fact my neuro increased the time to my next appt, I was doing so well. I would hate for you to base your decision on something that may not be true. Ring your neuro and discuss your concerns with them.
By the way I'm not a Copaxone-loving patient. I have experienced extensive lipoatrophy after 5 years on it, but my life now is so much better than it was 7 years ago. My legs work but are not going to win a beauty contest.
Don't rule it out, is all I'm saying.
Best of luck with your decision.
Edited to add: who knows what rebound effect ANY of the MS drugs might have. All I know is that Copaxone has not had any rebound effect on me and I interrupted it 3 times in the last 7 years.
