  • 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!
  • My ex-boyfriend's effexor effects (1 response)
    In my fifth year of living with my ex-boyfriend, he began taking Effexor and soon developed urinary incontinence, kidney failure and nightmares or night terrors so severe that he frequently screamed for prolonged periods, flailed and threw punches in his sleep. Upon ceasing to take Effexor, his sleep returned to normal. His kidneys also recovered, and he regained the ability to control urination. About a year after that, he was arrested for downloading child pornography, and I haven't spoken to him since. I'm not suggesting that Effexor caused him to become a pedophile, but it has been noted to produce personality changes in some users. It would be hard to ascertain whether any or all of these side effects resulted from the drug, but I would NEVER take it or allow anyone I cared about to do so. He had never exhibited any such symptoms before taking it, and I feel it ruined his life on many levels.
  • 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.
