I have been on copaxone since 2001.

My last mri, which was January of this year showed no new or active lesions. 

I've talked to some people who said they couldn't do a shot everyday. I guess with me, it's mind over matter. I have soreness sometimes depending on where I do the shot; mostly my legs, but overall I just do it.

I will stay on copaxone for as long as it's doing what it is suppose to do. I started ampyra in March of 2010. When first starting it, I danced at an affair at least 5 times, my gait improved and my mobility. Since being on it for a while, it has sort of plateaued, but I still have some improvement since I have been on it. It is taken every 12 hours, and if I don't take it, I know that I haven't. I will continue on it as long as I can.

The other medicine I take is provigil for fatigue. I have never taken it as prescribed because to me it is a bit strong. I only take a half tablet if I want to stay up longer or have things I have to do in my house. For the burning, I take Neurontin occasionally. I take it only when the burning is really bad. I don't take any other medicine for my Multiple Sclerosis.

I take health supplements like vitamin B, omega 3, vitamin d, co-Q10.
