I chose copaxone first off and i havent looked back. its been nearly 3 months and it doesnt seem to bother me anymore. I inject in the evening - right before bed. that way i dont forget to take it - think of it like implementation intention - and i sleep any mingling pain off. Although MS society did tell me to take it at the same time daily - i dont, but its still working - random spurts of numbnes have subsided.
My neurologist pushed interferons - avonex, rebif etc he assumed i did not do my research
well.. surprise! i did. and i had to tell HIM that i am prone to depression therefore they are not suitable for me.. something about flaring up and amplifying depression.
Then the topic of liver and cardiac damage emerged.. ive read a lot of journal articles that have concluded that interferons may cause or exacerbate liver and cardiac damage when taken in the long term. Apart from MS and endometriosis, i dont want anything else to deal with in this lifetime.
In conclusion, I am extremely happy with copaxone. As long as my trusty icepack or 3 are frozen in the freezer, ready for use, i am happy as larry. It's now become a part of our lives.
