Has Anyone Switched From Copaxone To The Generic Mylan Glatirimer?

Has Anyone Switched From Copaxone To The Generic Mylan Glatirimer?

Maybe it’s a small detail but I noticed the packaging the needles come in are not easy to separate... I guess that’s why it’s generic😳

I have recently been switched from Copaxone to Mylans glatiramer acetate and although I have not noticed anything different as far as reactions go, I do notice how difficult it is to separate the package that the needles come in.
I must say that I do like Mylans Whisperject better than the Autoject that I had with the Copaxone.

The injector comes from the pharmaceutical company.

The injector comes from the pharmaceutical company along with a welcome packet also when you initially start with the medicine

Not as of yet so I guess that’s a good sign...I have been on copaxone for 15 years and no side effects other than some site reactions and I do l8ke the option of the three day a week versus every day!

Have not started anything yet, but my Dr. wants me to start Copaxone. My insurance only covers the generic. Have you noticed any other differences?
