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

I spent about three hours in the MRI machine this morning. I start Copaxone on Monday. Hopefully I can start the cytoxan next week. We had a case of the Swine Flu in town last week--bad timing, but a I'm still excited. Chances are slim, but if I can walk again I plan on going downtown with my wife d...

Lars,
My Dr. is in Golden Valley, MN. I saw there was another Birnbaum last week, though. I was trying to upload a picture of my family and couldn't, so I thought I'd pick one until then. Thanks for the compliment... I think. What is the Viking gene?

It's not high dose Cytoxan. My nurse said he doesn't currently prescribe that, but I'll be talking to him about that next time I meet with him. She was sick and got very frustrated talking with me, so I was lucky to get my required information to proceed.

My nurse was out yesterday, so I'll have to ask her when she calls me back.

I got the approval for financial aid for Copaxone this morning and am very excited about starting this new therapy in April.

I was never offered different choices, so I'm comfortable taking whatever I can in that arena. I'll do some research on both once I ge on my treatment, though.

I'm excited to use both drugs and don't have any reservations about either drug. The Copaxone is just too expensive for me, so I was curious to hear if anyone's had experience using another therapy with the Cytoxan or just used Cytoxan by itself and what their experience has been. I've already decid...

He's one of the top MS doctors in the state and I always see his interviews in the MS magazines and papers--his name is Dr. Gary Birnbaum and he only works with MS. I feel he is very up-to date on MS. He speaks at various events in the state and runs clinical trials.

I was asking him about stem cell transplants and he said this was a safer way to sort of do the same thing. He wants both the Cytoxan and Copaxone. His nurse is starting to schedule an MRI and having someone call me to get a financial break on the Copaxone, then I'll schedulue with an oncologist.

cytoxan therapy

I've been all fo the FDA-approved drug therapies and received no positive benefits. My neurologist mentioned Cytoxan and I really like the idea of that. He also wants me to use Copaxone with it.I'd be game, but I'll have to pay almost 2k a month for that. That's cost-prohibitive for us. I'd like to ...
