... I was diagnosed with MS approx. 2 years ago. It started with optic neuritus, the first episode 15 years ago and again 2yrs and 9 mths ago! I had a spell of weird sensory symptoms last year and get the odd stabbing pains ongoing. But the thing that gets me down most is my poor memory! I mentioned that to the neurologist and he arranged for another MRI to be done. Now he is suggesting that due to the recent findings of the scan I should commence on Copaxone. Can anyone advice me on the pros and cons of the drug e.g. will it prevent:- my memory getting worse/ optic neuritus returning? I'm not taking any medication just now- I was on amitriptyline but stopped on the advise of to take each day as it comes. Does the injection have to be on a daily basis?

Many thanks
