Have you switched to Tecfidera? Are you glad you did?

Discuss Tecfidera (BG-12, dimethyl fumarate) as an oral treatment for multiple sclerosis.

Went to Tecfidere after a bad relapse which put me in a wheel chair. Done well with the GI symptoms but the niacin effect has been bothersome. Worse of all has been the sleepiness/tiredness. Diagnosed as SPMS by Neurologist. Looking at Rituxan.

I was on Tecfidera for 17 months. I did well on it ms wise and had no perceptible side effects, however total lymphocytes were low and continuing to fall. As of dec 28 I am on no meds. Will go back on copaxone once lymphocytes rebound.
