Ugh, I’m sorry you had this reaction! That must have been so scary, and I hope you’re feeling okay now. I’m really glad this won’t prevent you from getting future infusions though. Yay for benadryl.
Hang in there, okay?
That sounds so miserable. You really are a trooper though. You have really had to work at this to find a therapy that is working for you. Good for you for not giving up. You are very strong and courageous. Keep fighting Barb!!!!
Love and prayers,
Hello to Irishkitt..... i out of 10 people will experience an immediate post reaction to Copaxone, and even then, may not ever experience another episode again. Although it is very scary to experience a tight chest, and anxiety etc - if you are prepared for it to happen, and know that it only lasts for about 15 minutes - then it will make it easier to manage.
The drug company and my neurologist advise that the situation is not dangerous, it is just very alarming, if you are not prepared for it to happen.
Now this has not happened to me yet, but I have no doubt at one stage or another, it will,
Irishkitt, I do not think you should stop your copaxone. Did you consult with your doctor. How long have you been on it before you had the post injection reaction.
I really think that you should reconsider stopping it.
Just my thoughts
