    Hi, Joe,
    I'm sorry to hear about your problem with copaxone, but I'm so glad you shared it. I had some kind of "episode," a couple nights ago, emptying drawers, throwing things around, and babbling about nonsense.... I only remember bits of it, but unfortunately my not-boyfriend was there to take the brunt of it and tell me the next day. At least I'm not alone.
    Thanks again, and best luck,
    Lorraine

    Please Make that 14 people. Copaxone caused such a
    terrible psychotic break in my life it completely turned it upside down; wrecked my marriage. I had to be medicaided for months to bring me back and lost my drivers license in the interim. Now I have to be tested every two years if I want to retain it.
    I lost the respect of family and friends. I acted bizarrely and had to own the behavior that was induced by a incredibly powerful drug that apparently does not effect others the same way; so , "its my fault", go figure.???
    How does a person know what to foresee or handle something like that in their mid forties when they have no idea of what has happened or happening until after the fact. I felt like the injury was the copaxone and the insult was all the drugs and simultaneous testing that went on afterward. Thanks for the forum!

  • Was on Metformin (1000 mg per day), which was recently increased with a goal of 2000 mg per day (gradual increase). In the AM, I usually start with a cup of coffee, then breakfast, followed by more coffee (two cups per day). I take metformin immediately following meals. I fix up my coffee with organic half & half, and pure stevia. When drinking coffee, or dairy products, I experience severe upset stomach, without bowl and abdominal sounds. Is it possible I developed a form of lactose intolerance? This is the "only" dairy I use and prefer to use unsweetened almond milk in place of dairy, except for coffee. This morning, as an experiment, I decided not to fix any coffee and the symptoms have subsided so far today.
