I have been diagnosed with Primary Progressive MS! I have suffered from the symptoms for 4-5 years. I currently take high doses of Gabapentin, Lyrica and Baclofen to control the pain and muscle weakness. My doctor wants me to take Copaxone as she states they have good success with the drug. My research finds there is no known drug on the market for PPMS. Copaxone is designed for Replasing MS and I cannot find any information that stated this drug helps slow down the progression of PPMS. Copaxone lowers your immune system which concerns me.
Does anybody know if Copaxone slows down PPMS or any other drugs that will help me. I have balance, numbness, burning tingling pains in legs and arms?
