I used Copaxone for about 8 years. I didn't feel like they told me I would and switched to Rebif. LOVE IT!!! I haven't had a relapse in over 5 years, and no new lesions have shown up in my last 6 MRI's. Are you considering switching? Having problems?

I started on Copaxone in 2002 for 10 years;. 'they didn't have generic then. Used the
auto-ject thing which worked well for me at the time. Moved on to a few other MS drugs from 2012 to now. Hope everything goes well for you! It's a journey - just be joyful, take it one day at a time. And smile & laugh 5 times each day!

I use Glatiramer Acetate from the Mylan company. I am a newly diagnosed patient. I have been on it since April, never had anything prior to this. My follow up MRI was yesterday and there were no new lesions.

HiπŸ€—

I've been on Copaxone since dx in 2005. In January 2018, I too had to switch per my insurance company to that brand. I've had no issues, and LOVE their auto injector much better!πŸ˜‰

Hi Frank
If you talk to the Copaxone people i don't think they can make you switch to the generic. I have a real problem with the generics. They did not do any of the studies research or marketing that the name brands have to do. And yet they charge a ton of money for the generics why. Sorry that's my opinion I not be right what is my opinion
