I've been on it for a little over a month. Only side effects I've had was face and neck flushing/redness, but only maybe 3 or 4 times. No tummy troubles at all. I do not premedicate. I personally would not premedicate at all until I knew I had to.

Good luck to you with BG12!

Valvy--
I think a lot of people take regular coated aspirin (not baby aspirin). I think it si 325 mg. Any brand will work.
I am on week #3. If you want to read about my experience and what worked for me to get rid of stomach pain, I posted a thread called "Get rid of Tecfidera Stomach Pain". I would also recommend that you read Ladymac's (I think this is the link: tecfidera-bg-12-dimethyl-fumarate-f52/topic22462.html ) I used her advice and lots of the other advice on the board to make my own plan and it has really been helpful. Good luck!
