Best Medicine???

In 2 weeks I have to return to dr after researching packets of meds she sent home with me.. I am thinking Copaxone... Due to least side effects.. Any other suggestions? I've not tried any meds as of yet& not looking forward to it :(

I too was on copaxone for a bit. The shots (for me anyway) were not that big of a deal. Unfortunately copaxone did not work for me. So my Doc put me of Tysabri. I love it. Once every 28 days they hook me up, I put on headphones and take a nap through the whole process. Got MRIs a few weeks ago and was told by my Doc. that not only do I not have any new lesions, but the ones I have actually got smaller. So for me, it's working, for now anyway.

I have been on Copaxone for 1 1/2 years, my first medicine. I have been very happy not to have many side affects. Make sure you change your injection sites like they tell you. I put an ice pack on the site for a few minutes after the injection. They give you an injector pen so it's not so scary giving yourself a shot. Make sure your doctor specializes in MS, not all neurologists know much about it. Good luck!

I've been having Tysabri infusions over 10YRS and still am not JV VIRIS positive.
I have treatments every 8 weeks now.

I was taking Copaxone injections three times a week for approximately 3 months and stopped because it made me feel worse. My body ached worse than before. My brain fog was even worse and fatigue was 10 times worse than before. But everyone is different.
