Hey chickypoo, I don't know about copaxone, but I used to take tecfidera and I can tell you it was not that bad but I had some side effects that I didn't liek, I gained a lot of weight and had a rash in my face. But well that depends on each person, at the end I changed to gilenya and I am very happy. Good luck!

Hi,I've been to see my ms nurse and between us we decided that tecfidera wasn't any good for me, so I've to choose between rebif and copaxone injections and when I do then it'll be another month for my meds to be sorted, I think I'll be doing the copaxone it doesn't have side effects,and the rebif have flu like symptoms x

@chickypoo I think it is a good idea, I always try to run away from side effects as far as possible... so did you start already?
