Side Effects

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Copaxone. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
 
Common side effects of Copaxone include, but are not limited to:
 
  • Skin reaction at the injection site (such as redness, pain, or burning)
  • Weakness
  • Flushing or hot flashes
  • Joint pain.
