Copaxone and high blood pressure

Post by Loriyas » Sat Apr 04, 2015 3:36 pm

Has anyone found that Copaxone has increased their blood pressure over time? I don't mean just after the injection but rather over months or years. I have been on Copaxone for 12 years. I have seen a steady increase in my blood pressure over that time. I have tried to figure out its cause. I am on very few other meds, none of which I believe is the culprit. In addition, I have lost about 8 pounds and have seen the bp increase instead of decrease as would be expected. So now I am looking into Copaxone. Just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this?

I took copaxone from 2003 - 2013 and again since the beginning of this year. I have seen my bp drop from 150 / 90 to 120 / 70 since going on the Swank diet. I have never seen a correlation between copaxone and bp.
