I was wondering if anyone went from taking copaxone 3x a week to the pill called aubagio? I am having a hard time with my copaxone (been taking the injection for almost 10 years) im down to 3 injection spots from 7 because of a lot of hard spots and pain. My specialist suggested aubagio but i am worried about changing medication because i know copaxone works and i havent had a severe relapse since i started copaxone.
I myself am on Copaxone 3X weekly. Shots. I have been using it for 7 1/2 years. At yr 7 I had an MRI as it was a new neurologist. ( My last neurologist only did a MRI once every two years. ) I had for 6 years no new lesions. Yes everyone is different. I myself had no new problems so why change. As much as I hate needle. I did not and would not change to a pill. The old saying " If it isn't broken don't fix it" I think applies in your case. Good luck dear.
I did Copaxone for 4 years...and when a pill came out, I grabbed that option. I did Aubagio for about 3 years. Hair came out, as expected, but WOW! It came back...HUGE. My fine, straight hair is now curly and thick. Unrecognizable! BUT...I think it did something to my intestines, too. Diarrhea for too long. When I was down to 101 lbs, the neuro took me off. Now, I’m on Tecfidera. The flushing is more than I can handle...and will check this site for advice. Good luck to you!
