: its use
Hello, My husband has been recently diagnosed with MS this past Oct. It is devastating, but one day at a time. He has been taking Copaxone since then and what it does is to slow down the progression and also suppose to lengthen the time between relapses.With it slowing down the progression we are praying that the lesions shown on his MRI will not have advanced, but have very few new lesions if any new ones exist at all.You determine thte best time of the day to give yourself the injection and then just make it a routine. It's not to difficult and the needle is very small.Your doctor or nurse will help you give yourself the first injection so that you feel easy enough to do this at home yourself or with your spouse. We wish you the best of luck!
