Daily Injections

Postby jannybabes61 » Fri Jun 11, 2010 1:16 pm

Hi Chaseyshorts,
I, too, am from Ontario. Although I don't use Rebif, I inject myself, daily, with Copaxone and am, also, grateful for the gadgets that help with injections. In 31/2 years of using the drug, I haven't had another exacerbation. I hope you have as much success with Rebif. Good luck and keep on keepin' on.

Hi Jannybabes61 :)

Is Copaxone the one where your heart goes wonky for 15 mins after the shot? Sorry, but I'm so new to this that I don't remember half the stuff about everything.

Thank you, I too hope I have success with Rebif. My mom is trying to convince me to go to Poland. I think I read in your introduction that you're going. My dad lives there and they want me to go really bad. But I'm so new to this that at the moment I prefer not to. I guess I'd like to see more research done? Not really sure on the whole thing....I'm a scaredy cat!! LOL

Hi Chaseyshorts,
Early in my taking of Copaxone, on about four different days, I did have rapid heart beat after injecting myself with the Capaxone, but after I lay down, it went away. I haven't had a reaction in a long time.
I, too, am scared to go to Poland, but I also think that I've had this disease for a long time, so I might as well give the treatment a chance. I think, if your disease is not far advanced, that the treatment will probably be okayed for Canada in a few years, and then you could get it here. But, your Dad lives in Poland, so he might have information that would be useful to you. Good luck in your decision.
