Copaxone and high blood pressure

Has anyone found that Copaxone has increased their blood pressure over time? I don't mean just after the injection but rather over months or years. I have been on Copaxone for 12 years.

In addition, I have lost about ...

just curious

for those on Copaxone, why do you take it and why does your neuro prescribe it? I'm not trying to be negative here.

Going through customs with copaxone

Hi- I am getting ready for a trip to Costa RIca in a couple weeks. I have a copy of my prescription for security on the US side of things, but I am worried that Costa Rica customs may not be so understanding about someone bringing filled syringes into the country.
Has anyone done this? Any advice?
Thank you!

PS I'm on Copaxone 40, traveling for 6 days so I'll only need to take a ...
