A board to discuss the Multiple Sclerosis modifying drug Copaxone

Copaxone

Hi everyone,

A family member of mine has MS and comes under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme in Australia, therefore his copaxone is subsidised to a manageable level. He is moving to Singapore however and can't quite work out how to work it without having to come back to Australia every 6 months. Does anyone have any experience in this situation?

Thank you for your time.

Cpoaxone and swollen lymph nodes

My husband has noticed a swollen lymph node under his armpit. He has been on Copaxone for almost 2 years. I understand this is a rare side effect but is there anything to be done to reduce the swelling and make it go away quickly? Anything to prevent it from happening?

Thanks

If I must go off Copaxone...

Ok. Wife has MS - since 1996. Secondary progressive. On Copaxone for the past three years. Going on Medicare October 1. She has Anthem Blue Cross supplemental prescription. Neurologist is calling to get a prior authorization since Copaxone is not on their formulary.
My question: if the co-pay is going to be more than we can afford, and if we cannot receive assistance, what is the recommended procedure to wean off of Copaxone?
I'd rather ...
