Copaxone® is a prescription medicine that is used to treat relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS), to include clinically isolated syndrome, relapsing-remitting disease, and active secondary progressive disease, in adults.
The brand name is commonly Copaxone®.
Copaxone® is administered three times per week at 40 mg. These injections must be done at least 48 hours apart.
Serious side effects may occur right after or within minutes of injection. Some side effects include chest pain, damage to the fatty tissue just under your skin’s surface, liver problems including liver failure, and more.
We believe that high deductibles and copays shouldn’t prevent anyone from receiving the medications they need. That’s why at QuickRx, we help patients register with various public non-profit foundations and drug manufacturer programs to reduce the copays and out-of-pocket costs for the medication.
Here are the ways to apply for the program:
Most commonly, relapsing MS affects the central nervous system (CNS). The CNS is affected through an abnormal response of the body’s immune system, which consists of a network of cells, tissues, and proteins. In particular, one type of cell called a T cell plays a significant role for your body’s immune response. In relapsing MS, inflammatory T cells attack the myelin that protects the nerve tissue in the CNS. Copaxone® is believed to modify immune processes responsible for activating MS.
Copaxone® comes in injection form.
Copaxone® is done through a subcutaneous injection only.
You need to take Copaxone® exactly as prescribed by your doctor. It is critical to stay on your injection routine.
