What Works/doesn't Work?

What Works/doesn't Work?

Hello! I've been researching endlessly the numerous medications for MS. My Neuro prescribed Copaxone, although waiting to receive the prescription has allotted myself time to do research on other medications. I am just wondering what others have tried and what has worked vs what hasn't?

I have been on Copaxone since April
But need to change due to new leisions. I wanted to take Copaxone because it has been out the longest and had the least harsh side effects.
Everyone is different, you need to find what works for you.
Blessings

Ten years on Copaxone, MS under control, no side effects other than some skin issues. That I can live with.

I've been on Copaxone since 2008 with no relapses. I take Ampyra for walking, Baclofen for tight muscles, vitamin D3 / 50000 week and Cymbalta. But we are all different. Tell the neuro what's wrong and use what you get. If it doesn't help after 3 months tell the doc and try something else

I have been on Betaseron for 8 yrs and I have had very few problems. Took me about 1 month to get used to it but otherwise it has been okay. I do have injection site bruises .

I've been taking Rebif since diagnosed. Some injection site irritation, but that's it. No new lesions or new issues. Since 2008
