Stopping Tecfidera to get pregnant

First MRI

Hi. I am happy to report that I have a stable MRI. I started on Tecfidera in May. I was so relieved that this is working for me because I did not want to go back on Avonex! Good luck to all you Tec newbies out there.

Tecfidera and Psoriasis

I was on Tysabri for 6 years. I stopped and started Tecfidera. I was on Tec for 4 months and then I had two low white blood cell counts.
The week of the last WBC lab the skin on my hands and feet started peeling. My neuro had me stop taking carbamazepine and Tec. That was over a month ago. Last week after a skin biopsy it was diagnosed as Psoriasis. In Germany they treat ...
