Copaxone Vs Glatirmer Acetate

Copaxone Vs Glatirmer Acetate

my insurance told me I have to switch to Generic Copaxone (glatiramer acetate). I need to know if it is as good as Copaxone and who makes it.

Glatiramer Acetate And Anaphylaxis

Glatiramer Acetate And Anaphylaxis

This past week I experienced anaphylaxis while taking glatiramer acetate. I started glatiramer acetate last year and I told my MS specialist that it made my MS symptoms worse. He brushed off my concerns and stated that MS medications don't exacerbate symptoms. I know my body and I didn't feel great taking this medication. Has anyone else experienced anything similar? My doctor wants me to try another medication, but now I'm scared to take anything else.

I hated C. I didn't have serious reactions to it, but Tecfidera caused muscle weakness. I haven't been on a DMD for about 4 years.

Copaxone Switched To Glatopa (generic) Having Issues, Anyone Else?

I have been on Copaxone since my dx in 2008 and now I have do take the generic which I'm not at all happy with. The generic Glatopa makes my fingers swell up like balloons but the doctor and insurance won't prescribe Copaxone (DAW). Anyone have any side effects with the generic are noticing that they didn't have with Copaxone? I miss my Copaxone.

Itching From Glatopay

Itching From Glatopay

Hello! I itch all the time from the glatopay. Does anyone else experience this?

A MyMSTeam Member said:

Do you mean Glatopa which is the generic version of Copaxone ? If so itching is a common side effect of Glatopa. If it continues to be a problem than you should consider contacting your Doctor.

Vumerity Vs Aubagio

Vumerity Vs Aubagio

Hi! I’ll be moving on from Tysabri because JV virus antibodies high. I’ve had a great run with the treatment (just over 2 yrs) and not happy that I have to go off of it, but risk of PML cannot be ignored. I’m looking at Aubagio but also Vumerity. I’d love to hear your experiences with these oral medications. I’m not looking forward to the side effects... really had none with Tysabri. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

What Time Of Day Do You Prefer Taking Copaxone?

I am going to start taking the generic form of Copaxone when I get it on Tuesday March 15th. I tried Copaxone before injecting 3 times a week, but it was too strong. I am going to be on the one a day injection, and I was wondering what time of day is best?
