White Hair???

Hello,
I started copaxone last month and now my hair seems to be turning white. I am 33, so I think this is a little premature. At this point I have more white hair than older brother, who is 5 years older. Has anyone else heard of this?

Remedies for site reactions

Hey everyone. I'm new to this forum (and also to MS). I don't have it myself; my girlfriend was diagnosed a couple months ago and I believe she's on Copaxone. We've only been together a few weeks so I don't know for sure, but from reading about the different medications it sounds like that's the one. Anyway, she almost always gets big red welts at the injection sites. They burn at first, then the next ...

If you're running out of injection sites....

Hi

I have started back on Copaxone last week.

Just to say, before I took the break from Copaxone I had run out of usable sites because of lipoatrophy and hard lumps. It was getting very hard ...

Lipoatrophy Survey

Of all of you who are on Copaxone and how old you are and if you're male or female. I've heard that males tend to get it less, or not at all, and I was just wondering.

Copaxone cuts risk of developing MS-

-In 481 patients presenting with a first flare and confirming MRI, but no definitive diagnosis.

In the interim analysis, the proportion of patients developing clinically definite multiple sclerosis (re: a second flare) was 43 percent in the placebo group compared with 25 percent in the Copaxone group, Teva said.

For those that received a clinical diagnosis of MS- the second attack was delayed to 722 days, vs. the 2nd attack average of 366 days in ...

Ouch!

I have been doing Copaxone injections for almost 5 years. I have dealt with lipoatrophy (which I chalked it up to the price you have to pay with this drug) stinging injections, and some hives. None of this has caused me to want to stop because I have felt I have benefitted from this drug. But I nearly went through the roof with my injection last night! Injected into my thigh (as I have done ...
