Should I stop taking copaxone -shots were exposed to +86f?

Any advice for me? I'm traveling abroad for 3 weeks and a few days ago noticed that my copaxone shots were in a bag that had become very warm after being left in the truck for 10-15 mins.

(I've been on copaxone for ...

Input on Copaxone and Gilenya?

Hi!

I was taking Interferons for over five years and have developed some very bad reactions to them...i.e. severe flu-like symptoms.

My Neuro is going to put me on either Copaxone or Gilenya, as a result.

What is your experience with either of these? Do you feel they are "effective"? Side effects you've experienced?

Thanks!
