Anybody Take Extavia?

Anybody Take Extavia?

I am switching from Copaxone to Extavia and wanted to know what everyone else thinks? Side effects? Positive sides? Copaxone started giving me reactions every night that I took it and so I had to stop. Before Copaxone I took Avonex. I have never heard of Extavia, but my doctor has suggested I start taking it since I have had bad reactions to the other medications.

I have been taking Extavia for 10 months now. No flu like symptoms at all but I do get some injection site reactions like some swelling & post bruising...my belly & legs sure don't look pretty. But I'm feeling confident that I'm doing the right thing for me. I will have my yearly MRI next month...fingers crossed!!
