Have modified Tecfidera startups been successful?

I started Tecfidera 4/10/15, with 240 mg twice a day beginning a week later as indicated. Having constant stomach issues now, and am considering stopping Tec permanently. Has anyone had success after MD modified startup schedule, eg taking 120 mg tablets for more than just a week?

Gilenya and Airplane travel

Hello all. I am due to start Gilenya at the end of next week. I have been on Copaxone for about 2 years but still seeing a new lesion every few months. Was wondering if anyone has experience traveling on airplanes while on Gilenya. I have to travel internationally every 6-8 weeks (Asia and Latin America) which requires flights of 10-16 hours.

Will it really get better?

Hi, everyone. I am a 20 year old female, and my printed medical history would probably weigh more than I do. Which is part of the problem, if it is MS.

About a year and a half ago, I took a semester off from college for health reasons; trouble concentrating, fatigue, and back pain. At the time, I was also experiencing a strange tingling in my legs at around the same time everyday. I got ...
