Copaxone (Glatiramer Acetate)and/or alternatives
Basic Information On Copaxone
Copaxone is a drug used to treat and prevent relapses of multiple sclerosis (MS). Note that the drug does not cure MS. Copaxone is a combination of 4 amino acids or proteins that affect the immune system. MS is generally confirmed clinically after two or more symptomatic episodes, but the use of the Copaxone drug is approved as early as after the first episode. This is because Copaxone is effective as a treatment for relapsing or remitting MS. Normally, brand or generic Copaxone is administered subcutaneously to the patient.
Precautions/Side Effects For Copaxone
Since Copaxone or Glatrimer acetate is injected subcutaneously by the patient themselves, make sure that proper sterile injecting devices are used. Solution with visible particles should be discarded. It is recommended to change the area of injection daily to avoid the risk of lipoatrophy. It is also advisable to inject the drug when it is at room temperature. No routine tests are required during the course of the treatment other than checking the injection site regularly. Please inform your doctor about any problems while injecting or observation of any side effects.
Side effects most commonly observed with Glatrimer acetate include pain, swelling, redness, itching or a lump at the site of injection. Some patients have also experienced short-period symptoms like shortness of breath and chest pain immediately after the injection. You should also be informed that brand or generic Copaxone can cause several skin allergies or skin rash. Be sure to inform your doctor immediately about any such anomalies.
The ideal dose of Copaxone is 20 mg daily. Copaxone is available in a single-use prefilled syringe. The syringe contains one milliliter solution of 20 mg of glatiramer acetate and 40 mg of mannitol. These injections are supplied in bulk and patients are advised to discard the injections after use. Any amount of solution left in the syringe after injection should be discarded safely. These syringes are stored under refrigeration (2°C-8°C) and it is essential to bring the drug down to room temperature prior to administration.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
