Hello, everyone.
My name is Andrew and I have MS. For the last couple of years I am using Copaxone 40mg injections, which work good for me. What I like - no deadly side effects like in some other types like Tesabry and such. Anyways, when i switched to Copaxone 40mg, I faced a problem of actually tracking the locations of the injections. You need to inject yourself 3 times a week, and rotate 6 or 7 locations, each of which has sub-locations. Before it was simple - every Monday you inject in left hip, every Tuesday - right hip, and so on. Now its a floating schedule, and it's complex.
But, after spending some time, I found an answer - there is an app for iPhones, iPads - Injection Schedule Assistant, that actually helps with that rotation issue, notifications, and even tracking the medication supply.

I am using it and finally can get rid of bunch of papers that i was using to track the injections, and bunch of time that I spent on it!

Hope it will help other as well.

Hi Andrew. Another person switched from the 20mg copaxone to the 40mg. The ap for tracking injections is cool.
I have been on copaxone since 2012. It is a great med for sure. I tracked my injections perfectly with the 20m, you are exactly right. It's a little tricky when you switch. I actually have a couple injection sites I don't use often. Do you have any problems with swollen areas that you find are more painful than others? I know skin reactions are not a huge deal. It is nice to take 3 shots a week instead of every day. I am just curious if other people have had that issue.
