Frequently Asked Questions
To help you start your medication with Glatopa, we have answered some of your most frequently asked questions.
Q. Can Glatopa be as effective and reliable as Copaxone® (glatiramer acetate injection) if it’s a generic?
A. Glatopa is therapeutically equivalent to Copaxone®. This means it contains the same active ingredient and is expected to work the same way as Copaxone®, and you won't have any change with your treatment routine.
Q. Are Glatopa and Copaxone® given the same way?
A. Yes, Glatopa is given the same way as Copaxone®. Glatopa 20 mg/mL (once daily) and Glatopa 40 mg/mL (3 times a week) are both administered subcutaneously (an injection under the skin) using the Glatopaject® injection device.
Q. Will the support and services I receive be similar to what I was receiving with Copaxone®?
A. GlatopaCare provides the support services similar to what you are accustomed to, including 24/7 nurse support. You can receive 1-on-1 injection training with a GlatopaCare Nurse Trainer and your own dedicated GlatopaCare Specialist who can answer your non-medical questions related to Glatopa. Simply call 1.855.GLATOPA to contact your specialist with questions or to set up a training session with a Nurse Trainer.
Q. Will I be able to get help paying for Glatopa?

Q. Will I be provided with an injection device? Is it similar to the one I have been using to inject Copaxone®?

Glatopaject is designed to work like the other injection devices on the market, so using Glatopaject should feel familiar. Please see the Glatopaject Instructions for Use.
