Yeah why aspirin?
administration of non-enteric coated aspirin (up to a dose of 325 mg) 30 minutes prior to TECFIDERA dosing may reduce the incidence or severity of flushing

I have had very minor side effects so far (which could be even due to something else). i took my pill 4 hours ago and just now i suddenly started burning up - my face, my chest and my full arms. OMG - i am the colour of a bright red nail polish and is feels like the worst sunburn ever (it is also itchy).
is it normal to get a flush like that 4 hours after taking the medication? could it be a sudden alergic reaction? it has calmed down now (20 min later) but my skin is still very hot and sensitive.

Does everyone who takes this do one pill first thing in the morning and then one with dinner?
Hopefully I can dodge the redness and gas!
