The drug companies job is to sell their drug and they are not going to post anything that is unfavorable. The best way to evaluate a drug is to see what actual people who have used the drug. There is no reason for them to lie. Go to a site like "Ask A Patient" and see what the people who take the drug have to say. If you look at Copaxone and look on page 3 you will find a person who has destroyed his liver. He took the drug for 8 years and now he is on the liver transplant list. This doesn't count the dead people who do not have a chance to tell us their story. With these real people telling you what the drugs have done to them and you still want the drugs. There was a study done in England showing people doing the MS drugs did worse than those who didn't do the drugs. What is wrong with that study?
Kronk wrote:You have added nothing to this discussion... once again as a person without MS you are just spreading your fear mongering propaganda. The choice to take Copaxone was mine, not yours, so your statements are not appreciated. Many people have been on Copaxone for nearly 20 years with no ill effects.

Any dent from lipotrophy would probably just look like more definition in my abs It does make it more challenging to find injection locations though.
