  • Dont use copaxone. it caused huge necrosis of my flesh!!
    I took injections for 1.5 yrs. No problem. Then received a batch that caused huge indentions in my skin. I am a body builder, very obsessed with how my body and skin looks. Now I have massive (1/2 dollar sized) craters in my thighs and upper arms. I can no longer compete. Copaxone ruined my life. So sad, I was diagnosed with MS, but it's the medication that destroyed me. it's the f**ing treatment
    . Be careful. The drug companies don't care. They are just making $$$ off of you.
  • Ms relapse - changed to copaxone in april
    I've never joined one of these sites but saw this site. I have had MS for 14yrs but changed to Copaxone in April, had a relapse last week and wondered how others were getting on with it. I have a puffy left calf/ankle which can be a side effect of Copaxone - have others had this - can you reduce the swelling?
    If I haven't started using this site - my apologies!
  • Developed systemic scleroderma while on copaxone for 10 yrs.
    I just tested positive for both crest and systemic scleroderma. I already have ms and have been on copaxone over 10 yrs. I believe copaxone may have caused this. I dont blame the makers. I am sure it has helped more then hurt, but I wonder if this has happened to others. If so it should be something ppl are aware of. That there is a risk.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Although my MS has progressed and l currently use a wheelchair, it has stabilized as l exercise everyday and honestly believe more in supplements than l do in medicine as they have minimal side effects and just hope and pray that a cure for MS will be found one day
