Although an irritable digestive system might be characterized as "minor" and not very life-threatening, dealing with constant and/or severe stomach flu-type symptoms could easily ruin one's life... and one's job. Should it have been an injection?
The most common side effects of TECFIDERA include:
**flushing, redness, itching, or rash
**nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, or indigestion
Flushing and stomach problems are the most common reactions, especially at the start of therapy, and
may decrease over time. Call your doctor if you have any of these symptoms and they bother you or do
not go away.
