I have been on copaxone for two years now. Before that it was aavonex for 8 years. Have had ms for 17. You cant really ddetermine what med works for ms. everyone is different, as i am sure you have been told. Copaxone is a daily injection with an enjector that is so easy to use. Avonex had a long needle that was jabbed into muscle area. It was a long needle. Side effects for 2 days. felt horrible. no side effects with copoxane for me. was happy with the injection. But remember all meds affect ms patients differently. good luck!View Thread
