Glatiramer Acetate

Drug Info for glatiramer acetate

Glatiramer injection is used to treat adults with various forms of multiple sclerosis (MS; a disease in which the nerves do not function properly and people may experience weakness, numbness, loss of muscle coordination, and problems with vision, speech, and bladder control) including: clinically isolated syndrome (CIS; nerve symptom episodes that last at least 24 hours), relapsing-remitting forms (course of disease where symptoms flare up from time to time), or secondary progressive forms (course of disease where relapses occur more often). Glatiramer is in a class of medications called immunomodulators. It works by stopping the body from damaging its own nerve cells (myelin).

Glatopa is a combination of four amino acids that work by preventing your immune system from attacking the nerves in your brain and spinal cord. It is used to treat multiple sclerosis (MS) and to prevent relapse of MS.
