Depression from Copaxone

I used Copaxone about 5 ago with no significant problems. I started again on Monday and I've been kind of depressed and have a more difficult time with cognition. Has anyone else had similar problems?
Thanks, Ron

heat - damaging or just annoying? (new person question)

Easy question, just need to know: My symptoms pick up with heat. 'Tis the season.
