I’ve been on Avonex for 11 years, a year ago I got some Alopecia patches which continue to worsen. My neurologist originally said having been on Avonex for 11 years it was unlikely to be the cause of Alopecia but when I saw him again 6 months later he said it probably is. As I have had no relapses for the past 11 years he doesn’t think I need to be on it. I’m a bit scared to stop it, my thinking is that I can just about cope with my existing disabilities but more could take away my ability to look after myself so, left hand doesn’t word, I’d be stuffed it I couldn’t use my right one and I’d rather have a wig than a wheelchair! My MS Nurse has suggested I switch to Copaxone (not sure if the neuro knows this!!) I’m a bit concerned with side effects, especially injection site reactions, can anyone give any advice re copaxone please.
