Anybody Take Extavia?

Anybody Take Extavia?

I am switching from Copaxone to Extavia and wanted to know what everyone else thinks? Side effects? Positive sides? Copaxone started giving me reactions every night that I took it and so I had to stop. Before Copaxone I took Avonex. I have never heard of Extavia, but my doctor has suggested I start taking it since I have had bad reactions to the other medications.

Anyone Taking Betaseron Or Did And Get The Red Spots? How Long Before They Went Away?

Anyone Taking Betaseron Or Did And Get The Red Spots? How Long Before They Went Away?

I have red spots from the injection sites that showed up days after the injection. I am running out of places to give myself this shot. How long do the red spots normally stay? Mine have been there over 2 weeks and every other day new ones appear.

I took betaseron for years. I still have lumps (scar tissue) in my thighs from some bad site reactions. I found they eased in intensity over time. I did much better on stomach area.
