Getting involved during MS Awareness Month — or at any time, really — can be as easy as sharing information to spread awareness. To raise awareness, we’ve pulled together a few facts to help you educate others about multiple sclerosis. We’ll also be posting educational nuggets on the Lift MS® Facebook page throughout the month, which you can share with your friends and family to help spread awareness of the disease. You can also find a few other tips on how to get involved with the MS community in our MS Awareness Month blog post.

COPAXONE® (glatiramer acetate injection) is a prescription medicine that is used to treat relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS), to include clinically isolated syndrome, relapsing-remitting disease, and active secondary progressive disease, in adults.
Do not use COPAXONE® if you are allergic to glatiramer acetate or mannitol.

You can see a full list at https://www.copaxone.com/about-relapsing-ms/relapsing-multiple-sclerosis-symptoms or by asking your doctor. We hope this helps, and, as always, please contact your doctor if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
Gayla | March 30, 2017Yes it was very helpful. I was diagnosed two years ago with MS. I went into anger mood from day one. Now I am at the I will control MS and it won't control me. I am at the gym five days a week I was before I was diagnose and I still am. I just started weight training and I have also started riding the stationary bike 5-10miles daily. I wanted to go outside the box and so far it's working.
