I would LOVE to blame weight gain on Copaxone but I know my fluctuation comes from bad eating habits and lack of exercise. It appears that about 3% of people using it did have that possible side effect.  This disease works on us in so many ways, it is possible you are one of those 3%.

But also take a look at your lifestyle habits and see if perhaps something there might contribute to the problem.

I've been on copaxone since Oct. 2008.

Welcome to our corner of the web - I hope to see you around.

be well, Lulu
