Glatect How to Take

Glatect (Glatiramer) belongs to a group of medications known as immunomodulators. Immunomodulators modify the way our body's defence system works. Glatect (Glatiramer) is used to treat the relapsing-remitting form of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Glatect (Glatiramer) is also used to delay the onset of MS in people who have experienced a single flare-up of symptoms and have changes that suggest MS in their magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans.

MS is a disease that affects the way the nerves in our body work. It is an autoimmune disease (the immune system attacks the body) and cannot be spread from person to person. In MS, damage occurs to the myelin sheath, a protective layer that wraps around a nerve, like insulation around electrical wiring. Normally, this sheath allows electrical messages to be sent down the nerve quickly and efficiently. If this insulation is injured, electrical signals in the central nervous system will not be sent properly. For unknown reasons, in MS, the immune system sees the myelin as foreign and attacks it.

It is thought that Glatect (Glatiramer) works by altering the immune system to reduce its harmful effects on the myelin sheath. It does not cure MS, but it may decrease the frequency of relapses and reduce the number of damaged brain areas as seen on MRI scans.

Glatect (Glatiramer) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Glatect (Glatiramer) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Glatect (Glatiramer) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Glatect (Glatiramer) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are being given Glatect (Glatiramer), speak to your doctor. Do not stop using Glatect (Glatiramer) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Glatect (Glatiramer) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to use Glatect (Glatiramer) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Rotate the injection sites (arms, thighs, upper buttocks, or stomach) to minimize injection site skin irritation.

It is important to take Glatect (Glatiramer) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, inject it as soon as you remember. If it is less than 12 hours until your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not inject a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
