Copaxone Drug Interactions
Copaxone® (glatiramer acetate) does not have any known drug interactions at this time. However, you should always tell your healthcare provider about all medications you take, including prescription drugs, non-prescription drugs, and vitamins or supplements. Even though there are no known Copaxone drug interactions, it is important to understand that Copaxone has not been tested with most other medications.
Copaxone does not seem to interact with corticosteroids (such as prednisone), which are sometimes used in the treatment of multiple sclerosis. It is not known if the drug interacts with interferon beta medications (Avonex®, Rebif®, Betaseron®), other commonly used multiple sclerosis medications.
New Copaxone drug interactions may be discovered at any time. Therefore, any time you start or stop a medication, you should talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about the possible drug interactions that may apply to you.
