Copaxone injection site reactions related to body weight?

My question is whether having a low body weight increases adverse side effects with Copaxone, and maybe the other RABs.

Back in January 2005, I finally got my Copaxone and gave it a try - unfortunately I lasted only five days with it. Injecting it made my blood pressure drop, so I would have to inject and then lay down for at least a half hour, sometimes longer, or I would faint. The injections into ...

The full article, which deals with the impact on Teva's share price (rather than on patients taking the stuff) can be found at:
