Just a word of warning. Been on copaxone for couiple of months now… A couple of weeks into it found nyself covered in lumps abd bruises. Small price to pay if it works.

Just hope it goes really. Got ice pack with initial kit but don’t really use it.
Thanks I will keep an eye out for them, I do have some lumps + bumps but a diet would get rid of that. Hehe take care julsiexx
Well done you! I have been on copaxone 8 months now. I really struggled with it in the beginning, stinging,lumps, bumps bruising and skin reaction, but it does get better, it took a good 5 months to settle for me, but everyone is different. I have to say that since starting it I feel the best I have in a long time, and finger crossed no relapses either!
Hope it goes well for you
I'm sure the daily jab is a pain worth enduring, i'm quite lean which doesn't help and I don't do my arms ....stick with it but expect itching/bruising/lumps i press the site where I inject firmly 1st and it helps (my accupuncturist does the same thing)
Hope it keeps you relapse free
Yep - I dont do my arms every week either. Just too itchy & splodgy. Tend to rotate them on a 2 or even 3 week cycle.
It took a fewmonths for my skin to settle & I found going deeper made it easier & warming the syringe under my arm for a few mins to bring it to blood temp helps too.
Feel much better in myself since taking it
