with fellow injectors of painful meds : I tried the alcohol pads Wal-Mart have with Benzocaine They say : Alcohol Swabs with Pain Relief I like them. I inject Copaxone and since I've started using them my pain scale has dropped a few points with injections.
And of course it still hurts like hell after....but that initial sting is not as bad as I really use as much of the alcohol pad on my skin as I can get on there and let it dry. Then ( I know they say not to use alcohol after, but since this has pain relief after.....) I use the alcohol pad AFTER the shot too.
These have worked for me , so wanted to share with others. I know some people probably can't tolerate Benzocaine. But if you can and have Wal-Mart it may be worth a try.View Thread
