I have been on copaxone for 5 months and I am seriously thinking of switching to gilenya. Injections are a little too much for me and also I have gained over 35 pounds since I got on it. (I do exercise and watch what I eat) and also I have serious skin problem as well. I suspect these are side affects from the medicine. Do you recommend gilenya? I have an appointment with my neurologist tomorrow and want to ask him about it but I would love to know how everyone feel about the medicine first… read more
Definitely have a talk with your neuro. Dr.; Gilenya has worked well for me but as we all know tolerance and performance varies from person to person.
I have been on gilenya for three years along with 5000 IU vitamin D. i have had no new lesions.
I have taken Copaxone for probably close to 8 years. Have done very well - no new lesions - yes hate the shots but has made a difference sine they now have the 3 day.
I took copaxone for about 10 years. I am now on Gilyenya, and doing well, I really like how much easier it is.
