On IVIG for 12 years, now Tecfidera or Copaxone?

I have been on IVIG for over 12 years now. MRIs and other health issues are causing that to change. I am JCV+, so no option for other infusion med.

Had a terrible reaction to Avonex when tried years ago.

Looks like my choices are Tecfidera or Copaxone...

Modafinil, Ritalin

I use occasionally modafinil to make something against my fatigue and weakness. I also feel some effect in terms of concentration while walking. Now I have heard that the effect can be increased if you grind a tablet and snuff in the nose.
- Who has done this already?

Tecfidera ....and Gas


I have been taking Tecfidera for almost 3 weeks now. I do not experience any symptoms (thank God) besides horrible flatulence and gas. There is no constipation or abdominal pain, just the gas. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to reduce the gas? I do not eat dairy, meat, or processed foods btw. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
