Copaxone Drug Information
Copaxone is used to treat multiple sclerosis (MS). It is a protein that is thought to work by preventing your immune system from attacking the nerves in your brain and spinal cord.

How to Use Copaxone
Read the Patient Information Leaflet and Instructions for Use if available from your pharmacist before you start using glatiramer and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Copaxone is given by injection under the skin as directed by your doctor. Copaxone is available in 2 different doses. Depending on your dose, it is usually given once daily or 3 times a week at least 48 hours apart. Follow your doctor's instructions carefully on how often you should use Copaxone. If you are using Copaxone at home, learn all preparation and usage instructions from your health care professional and the product package. Your doctor will usually have you give your first injection in the office. Wash and dry your hands before injecting glatiramer. Before using, warm the drug if it has been refrigerated by keeping the syringe at room temperature for 20 minutes. Do not inject cold glatiramer because this can be painful. Copaxone is normally clear and colorless to slightly yellow. Before using, check Copaxone visually for particles or discoloration. If either is present, do not use the liquid. Before injecting each dose, clean the injection site with rubbing alcohol. It is important to change the injection site daily to prevent problem areas under the skin. Keep track of your injections and do not reuse the same injection site for at least 1 week. Inject the medication under the skin of the hip, thigh, abdomen, or back of the upper arm. Do not inject into a vein. After pulling out the needle, apply gentle pressure on the injection site. Do not rub the area. Discard any unused portion in the syringe after a single use. Do not save for later use. The Dosage of Copaxone is based on your condition and response to treatment. Use Copaxone regularly to get the most benefit from it. Do not change your dose or stop using Copaxone without talking with your doctor. Learn how to discard needles and medical supplies safely. Tell your doctor if your condition worsens.
Before using glatiramer, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Copaxone may contain inactive ingredients (such as mannitol), which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Copaxone, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,heart disease (such as chest pain, heart attack). Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). During pregnancy, Copaxone should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is not known if Copaxone passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you miss a dose of Copaxone, use it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Use your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist.

The side effects of Copaxone may vary in number and intensity for many different reasons. Factors such as age, weight, gender and ethnicity may influence the side effects of Copaxone.

Further, side effects from Copaxone may also occur as a result of an interaction with certain herbal supplements, foods or drinks.
