Sarah discusses the medications she takes to treat her multiple sclerosis.
I take Copaxone®, or glatiramer acetate, which is a daily injection, and I believe it has helped. In nine years, my MS has not progressed, and that’s by physical exam, by MRIs. I have no new lesions. My brain has not atrophied at all, so I feel that’s helped. MS medications are difficult because you can take them religiously. It doesn’t help the symptoms you have; it just prevents the MS from getting worse.
So you never really know if it’s working. You kind of go on faith, but the fact that I have done so well over the last nine years, I think is a testament to the medication.
