Copaxone 3 times a week dose

Hello, I am due to go on BG12 but have asked to go on Copaxone until I can start the BG12 end of Oct. I have been reading the Copaxone website and see there is now the 3 x 40mg injections option per week instead of the daily 20mg injections.

Is anyone on the 3 x 40mg injection option per week?

hi lenney

i’m hoping to switch to 3 x weekly very soon.

i’ve been doing the daily injection for 6 years and my injection sites have become painful.

don’t know if you will be able to get copaxone for such a short period of time as if i remember right, it needs to build up in your system

good luck

Hi Carole, thanks it does make sense what you say about it needs to build up in my system. It was what an MS nurse said last month at a DMT talk. I suppose then it was still on the fence if BG12 was going to be given the green light. So that’s why going on an injectable was suggested during the wait for BG12. I have emailed the secretary of my MS neuro, waiting for a relpy.
