I was stuck between Copaxone vs Betaseron and decided I'd rather try my luck with flu-like symptoms than risk permanent damage to my body w/ lipoatrophy. It sounds so vain, but it's just how I feel. If the Betaseron side-effects are too strong, I can always switch and know I at least tried something else first.
I'd love to hear any advice/tips anyone has for someone starting injection therapy. I'm scared of the side effects (needles aren't my favorite but I think I'll be OK with that regard) and worried about how I'll incorporate something like this into my life. I had dreams of quitting my job and traveling and now I feel so stuck...I have the savings to travel BUT not to live without health insurance, and now I feel like I have no choice but to stay on insurance, especially if I'm taking drugs that cost upwards of $2500/month. OMG.

I think of this often as I go into starting betaseron.Sawdoggie wrote:Whatever it is, I'll take it!
I can still try natural approach things while taking an injectible...
I'm scared, as there is hardly any fat on my body, but I figure that after a while, it'll be no big deal. I hope it won't be a waste of time.
PS Liz, how are you doing?
