Hope the appointment went well
I was on Copaxone for 4 years. After a couple of weeks I found injecting no problem at all and, three after coming off it, I can still remember my injection routine! Sat: left thigh, Sun: right thigh, Mon: right hip, Tues: right tummy, Wed: alternate arm, Thurs: left tummy, Fri: left hip
I injected manually, in the morning, after brushing my teeth - just part of the getting up routine. Injecting manually was very straightforward, I liked being in control and disliked the abruptness of the autoinjector. I did the injections in the morning because I’d have plenty of time to remember to do it on the same day if I forgot!
I got a bit of itching / stinging at injection sites and red blotches, but nothing of any note and I was busy getting up and getting the kids up so I didn’t really notice anything. I did have a weird thing happen once when I must have injected into something I shouldn’t have in my tummy and I sort of burned the inside of my skin, leaving a scar, but I’ve never heard of anyone else ever doing this, so I wouldn’t worry about it if I were you.
I only had a couple of minor “blips” (not worthy of the word relapse) while on it and developed just one new lesion in 3.5 years. I had to come off it when I started a nasty relapse and my neuro told me it wasn’t working for me any more, but if that hadn’t happened, I’d have been happy to stay on it.
I hope it works really well for you
