Copaxine

Were you looking for information about Copaxone? Copaxine is a common misspelling of Copaxone.
 
Copaxone® is a medication that is licensed for the treatment of certain forms of multiple sclerosis (MS). It has been shown to be effective at reducing MS exacerbations and lesions. The drug, which is available by prescription, comes as an injection that is administered just under the skin once daily.
 
Most people tolerate the drug well, but side effects can include weakness, injection site reactions, and flushing. Because some people are more likely to experience problems with Copaxone than others, tell your healthcare provider about all other medications you are taking (including vitamins and supplements) and other medical conditions you have before beginning treatment.
