I was going to start Copaxone as my DMD of choice, but went with the abx route and doing much better. Copaxone is made from 4 amino acids so it really doesn't reduce your immune system, rather it creates a decoy for MS to attack the amino acids instead.
When I considered Copaxone, Minocycline and LDN both consistently came up to treat the side effects. I would research on your own to find out more, because I negated the entire MS DMD treatment. The makers DO NOT even know how Copaxone truly works.
