Copaxone AutoJect in Arms

How to Inject Yourself with Copaxone in the Arms Using the AutoJect for Copaxone makes the use very easy! Even for those of us who hate shots (isn’t that everyone?) it’s simple. I wrote a post about using the AutoJect and you can see it here.

I couldn’t figure out how to inject in the arms until a nurse gave some additional training. She told me a simple way and it made complete sense!

I hope this helps! Let me know in the comments below!

  2. Copaxone has the low side effects and most likely the low pain site problems however my brain has gone way to far and I want one of the additional aggressive treatments thus my Betasteron. own early knowledge with Copaxone was similar – at first I used the autoject, and sometimes they stayed ruddy and painful for a few days. eventually things improved and regularly when I would obtain “swelling” they would dispel by the occasion that universal region rotated back in a week.

  4. Although using the Autoject makes it easy for an individual to do the job, bear in mind that you should also be careful in what you are doing. You should have a proper knowledge on how to inject it since without doing so may cause some risks. It is recommended for an individual to be trained by a nurse or a medical professional before doing it on your own so as to ensure your safety.

    • Candice,
      Thank you for saying so!!! The pharmaceutical companies provide a nurse to individually train those who are using the AutoJect. I used Copaxorne in 2001, it helped for years then quit working on my body so I switched to others pharmaceutical options. After I returned from Johns Hopkins and the Cytoxan test treatment, I started on Copaxone again being trained by a nurse both times. The nurse the first time didn’t show me how to do the arms. When the second nurse gave me such an easy demonstration I wanted to tell the world! I have to re-read this article and make sure I said that!!

    • Terrell,
      Have you used Copaxone without the AutoJect? I started Copaxone back when we had to mix it up and I hated it until there was an AutoJect!

  7. Thank you for posting this. After you did I gave my rebif auto injector a try and it made the shot so much better. My husband does it for me and it takes so little effort. He likes it to.
