copaxone use

I have been on Copaxone for 4 months now and feel that I am doing worse not better. Is there anyone who tried it and did not think that it worked?
I am getting very disheartened.

Re: copaxone use

I have been on copaxone for almost a year. . . at my six month mark there were new lesions and my neuro was concerned but wanted to give it another 6 months - I find out in May if it is working or not. are you getting another MRI in a few months? I have heard that it takes Copaxone about 6 months to work, so it is quite possible that the medication is not at its full effectiveness yet.

Re: copaxone use

I'm almost done with my 4th month of Copaxone. While I wasn't expecting to get better I do think I'm having less cognitive trouble since I've been on it. No improvement in other areas, but don't think I'm worse either.
Won't have another MRI for at least 2 months, so I'm just staying the course...
