In brief: See answer below
Most common side effects of Copaxone (glatiramer) are injection site reactions with redness or welts that can last a few days.
Occasionally, patients will report severe chest pain that occurs once or twice a month and is limited to 3-5 minutes in duration. More rarely, patients will report flushing in the face followed by severe chills and incontinence that can last up to 3 hours.
