Re: severe abdominal cramps

I suggest you call your doctor to discuss this. I have read about a rare few having drug interactions while on copaxone. Are you taking a lot of other oral medications too?

Be sure your doc knows about everything you are taking...including vitamins and any analgesics (aspirin, tylenol, advil, etc.).

Good luck. Keep us updated.
