    Hey Jono

    Just seen John’s reply on DMTs and would definitely reinforce getting yourself up to speed with the various DMTs. You should be pushing your consultant on why Copaxone vs other injectables like Avonex and Rebif. Look at the side effects and decide what you can live with. I was on Avonex for 10 years and had chosen to inject weekly rather than more frequently even though it was an intra muscular injection. The night of the injection I would get flu-like side effects for at least 18 hours. A bit tough but it worked for me.

    I’m interested why they are promoting Copaxone rather than Gilenya or Tecfidera, but do understand that consultants often see the beta interferons as the starting point and progression to the daily pills is often, as John pointed out, as a result the previous treatment failing.

    My advice is that you do your research and keep pushing your consultant until you are comfortable.

    Nicholas
