I have to just say we all have ms and the support and information we receive can be overwhelming. Some choose to constantly stay on the computer and research hour after hour. I choose not too. Ladymac has literally been the most informative and supportive through the transition I went through with Tecfidera. I feel I am going for quality over quantity of life. I want to be aware of all the possibilities of taking any medication however the bottom line is one should go with their gut feeling. Ash3

I agree, hats off to Ladymac. Great advice all around. It can be overwhelming if you live your whole life around MS related things, so deciding on the best meds for each person & doing the best you can is the only way to go. I am glad I pushed through a rough start with Tecfidera & am doing much better now. I feel for those who had severe reactions and had to discontinue it, that is so disappointing. We should all give ourselves a pat on the back for staying positive through this MS journey.

I am JCV+ and am switching to Tecfidera. My docs will monitor my lymphocytes. The cases of PML in Europe were with highly immunosupressed individuals and can't be solely attributed to fumarates.
