Welcome Irishheat! You are right. There are some awesome, knowledgeable and caring people on this site. I've been on Copaxone since Jan 2007 and was diagnosed in Nov 2006, so I started treatment right away. I, like many people who have responded back to you am on Copaxone. It's been 3 months and aside from injection site reactions, I LOVE IT! I feel better and no side effects. Some of the other people I've read about
experience some flu like symptoms with their treatments. You need to get as much information on all of the drugs as possible before you make a decision. PLEASE make a decision soon though. The sooner the better. Littlechina and I both have an extreme (and I do mean extreme) fear of needles, and have become "Needles Masters!"
Know that people are here and are praying for you. I'm on of them.
