how strict are you guys about taking your shot at the same time each day? I have been doing mine at approx 8pm every night, but have plans this Saturday--is it a big deal to take it early one day? Like at 5pm instead of 8? Having people over for a party...don't really wanna come inside during middle of party for a shot, but will if I have to lol. *and there will be alcohol, so before would be extremely better than after the party also LOL

Hi! How are you doing?!

At first I was very careful to do my shot within an hour or so each day. I also did 8 at night. But I can tell you, after a time I did shots when I could. I don't think a shot at 5 is going to cause any issues.

I've since switched my time to the morning. I've gotten very lazy about the alcohol swabs. I do my shot right after my morning shower. On weekdays that's at 5:30. And on weekends it may be 7 or 8.

Does anyone else have an opinion or information? I think the doctors and nurses will say try for the same time.

I don't think you need to be that precise. I think the drs tell you to take it at the same time everyday so it becomes part of your daily routine--so you don't forget. I'm no longer on Copaxone, but when I was, I always took mine right after dinner.

thanks for the info guys! and Gretchen, so far so good---I have already decided not to do shots in my thighs--way too much swelling & pain that lasts like 3-4 days. Everywhere else has been tolerable :) Otherwise the only difference i've noticed is i've gotten a few foot/leg cramps out of nowhere....possibly from the copaxone? and thanks:) i'm planning on a good time Saturday LOL I didn't think delaying the shot should be a big deal, but I'm glad I have you guys to ask to make sure :)
