Just gave myself my first Copaxone shot! It was no big deal at all!

Woo hoo, I'm an MS warrior now, fighting my disease!

Good luck!

3. Very brave

I'd have a real hard time doing it to myself and I'm an RN.

Even a finger stick on myself was done with hesitation.

So glad you have medication now and can fight back.

5. What's The Frequency On Copaxone?

I'm on Betaseron, which is every other day, and i know Avonex is weekly.
How often to do have to do the shot?

6. It's daily, but it doesn't have any bad side effects

7. Way to go

People shouldn't underestimate how hard it can be to give oneself a shot. I give shots to others all the time, but, well, if I end up being diagnosed, I'll be doing it to myself, but I hate to watch so I'll have to learn to watch. Kudos!
