Getting used to the COPAXONE® was not difficult. I was actually on a different medication when I was first diagnosed. I was on a weekly intramuscular injection. I had to give myself injections in the muscle, and I had very bad side effects from that. I basically felt like I had the flu for four days out of the week, and then it was time to take it again. So that was very hard for me to get used to because that really did change my life, the way I was living my life, my lifestyle which was too sick to go out. I was stuck in my apartment all the time. So the COPAXONE® for me was very easy to switch to. It’s a pen that you just push a button and it injects, and then I don’t personally have any side effects. So it’s just like taking a vitamin every day. And other people say the same about the other drugs that they take. Once you get into a routine, it just becomes habit.
