    Generic Copaxone

    I have been getting a few questions about generic Copaxone (Glatopa) this week, so I wanted to post this resource for the National MS Society. If you are on Copaxone are you considering switching to a Glatopa? Why or why not?

    I don't know. What is the cost? I was on Copaxone in the past. When I was on Tecfidera I had to get a grant, extremely tedious.

    Stephanie Butler, RN replied to thefurryfour's response:
    I'm still waiting to hear what the cost is going to be, but initial reports are saying that it is not significantly cheaper. I expect that as more generics hit the market, costs will be driven down further. It is also only available as a daily injection, not the three times weekly formulation of Copaxone that was recently released.
