Hi, I’m currently on daily glatiramer acetate/copaxone injections, have been for 5 yrs. But, due to bad lipoatrophy, it has been suggested I can switch to copaxone 3 x week injections OR the oral med dimethyl fumarate/tecfidera. However, having read up on tecfidera, I really don’t like the sound of the side effects! And because it seems to suit me, I’m only changing because of the lipoatrophy, so don’t want to change to something that makes me feel bad 🙁
Have any of you experienced this switch of meds?
Thoughts & experience of Copaxone 3 x week?
Thoughts & experience of Tecfidera?
What were your experiences? Side effects? Thoughts?
I have an appointment to see my MS nurse tomorrow but still can’t decide what to do?!! Help!!
Thanks in advance! Jules
