What a glorious day !! I can smell spring in the air.
My question is regarding Copaxone and choices for treatment.
I was on Tecfidera until a week past friday, that’s when my blood results came back with eosinophils at 3.5 (normal range 0.0-0.5) This indicated a ‘significant drug allergy’. So the MS consultant has ordered a stop on the Tecfidera, a rest of a few weeks until I see the MS nurse on 13th April, and then to start Copaxone. I must admit that I feel flipping brilliant having now stopped the Tecfidera,…energy in abundance, fantastic mood, appetite and guts back to normal..
We apparently are limited in choices because some of the other DMTs are ‘too closely related to Tec and therefore would potentially cause allergic reaction too’. Also there are a few coexisting issues, eg blood clotting disorder…So although this Copaxone is less efficient than Tec, ie a step down, or backwards, it is the one they recommend.
Is there anyone else with a similar experience?
Can anyone pass comment on Copaxone, any issues, and ANY ADVICE ??
Would you recommend, going for the 20s or the 40s?
How did you find the post reactions and how did you deal with it or compensate ?
thanks in advance for any comments
Love to you all on this wonderful day !!
