I have read and re-read the info on both Avonex and Copaxone and can't make a decision on which one to choose. I have been on Avonex in the past and got the flu like smptoms for a few days and the needles are so long, they still still just scare me and my husband, who injected them for me.
I thought about trying Copaxone this time, but I read about the "bumps" and had a similar experience when I had to take medicine for a blood clot. The worst thing I read on these boards about Copaxone was the "attacks" that people had after about 10-15 times, where they had to call 911...and it seemed like more than a few had this experience.
So...I can't figure out which one to choose, but based on the restart of attacks every 28 days, I need to choose one now...like by tomorrow.
My doctor is also putting me on a steriod infusion, just once a month to help to settle these recent attacks that are coming on now that I have finished cancer treatment for Hodgkin's disease.
Anyone have any suggestions or a favorite here? Any response will help
