I take the Prevacid because I have very bad GERD. No, not a recommended med for Tecfidera protocol.
If you are able to follow the timing of your other meds first thing in the AM, including if you are able to take aspirin, take the enteric coated aspirin full strength one (325mg) and then wait an hour and then have your breakfast as described along with your Tecfidera you should be good to go.
Lunch as normal.
Then the other thing is that dinner with the Tecfidera is important, along with don't eat too late so you are laying down within 2 hours of eating and taking your Med that way you will have better digestion and absorption, then take any evening meds that aren't a must with food and at dinner time at bed time allowing a clear sailing is what I did, it is up to you and your doctor (I am not one) for the approved timing of your meds.
Another tip is to not let your stomach get empty in the afternoon. A light snack, crackers with cheese or peanut butter or something to absorb things.
I am without absolutely any side effects. Now in Month #3 and have increased energy and am thinking and processing things better mentally (puzzles, games) and my balance is great, gone from cane to no cane. I am finding that my brain is telling me to do more and my body is out of shape so I have to do things in better moderation so I don't have a sore back or neck, etc., since I haven't used those muscles in a while, am reconditioning through swimming.
Feel free to PM me and Best of Luck! You guys are up for some nasty heat this week, keep hydrated and cool! It is crazy that the Northeast will be hotter than Atlanta!
Blessings and Be Well!
