THEORETICAL: Can Copaxone cause relapses

Post by CassidySS » 3 years ago

Can taking Copaxone actually cause your body to start attacking one's own myelin ONCE you stop injecting copaxone ?

I keep reading about all these "success stories" where people who stopped Copaxone experienced relapses shortly afterwards.

The conclusion these people reach - Copaxone must have been working for them when they were on it.

What if the Copaxone activated the body's immune response and was actually causing these relapses once treatment stopped?

Thoughts? Crazy talk? I'm skeptical of Big Pharma drugs.

"I'm skeptical of Big Pharma drugs."

Then you probably should not go on a DMD.
