syringes and armpits

Does anyone bring their Copaxone syringe to body temperature by holding it under the armpit for a few minutes before injecting? I seem to remember reading some posts saying that this practice helps with site reactions, but of course I can't find them right now.

New to injections and bit freaked out!

Hi All,
I was diagnosed with MS in Aug this year and am now on my first week of injections with Copaxone. It's been a bit of a whirlwind from diagnosis to this point and am feeling a bit scared and alone with this whole injecting thing. When I inject I get a stinging sensation afterwards... this I can cope with but it's much worse on my arms and bottom. Really painful, has anyone else ...

allergy to copaxone?

I started taking copaxone about a month ago-- only ever had immediate site reactions. Yesterday however when I injected in my arm, I got red splotches on my upper arm around the injection site-- not itchy or uncomfortable but there. Today I injected in my other arm-- splotches again (but smaller and less red) in that arm as well as in the upper arm on the other side and a few on my chest as ...

Scary Reaction to Copaxone

I am currently on Copaxone and Prednisone w/famotidine (a strong prescription strength pepsid). I'm only on the prednisone to help boost my arms injury but according to my doctor the two meds together are not known to have any reactions.

A bout a week ago I took my shot (I believe it might have been a day or two after I was prescribed the prednisone when I had started the copaxone injections about a week ...

Switching over to Copaxone

Hi Everyone,

My neurologist wants me to consider switching from Rebif to Copaxone.
I've been on Rebif since 25 Jan 2005. I was doing good on it for a while but now keep getting frequent relaps (on the optics) and the time between two relaps is getting shorter. That's why my neurologist wants me to consider switching to another immunomodulator for MS. Furthermore I think Rebif is making me losing my hair. Any advises/information that ...
