Hi Jumper, I hope this post finds you still doing well! I was diagnosed with MS 12 years ago. I've been on Avonex, Copaxone, Tysabri, and now tecfidera. I can tell you without any hesitation, this is the best med for me! In the beginning, I followed Ladymac's plan and had no side effects but occasional flushing. Actually, the flushing has become a little joke in our house because of how irregular it is. We call it The Art Project Gone Wrong. It goes across my chest and shoulders like a blaze of fire, but in patches. I've been told to take an aspirin, but with the parade of other pills we take I say- put a cold wet paper towel on it, wait a half hour and be done with it!
Kromer's response of runny nose, phlegm situation is interesting, though. I was about to make an appointment with an allergist. I never thought about the boogies being related to tecfidera. hmmm.
At any rate, check out Ladymacs side effect plan, then enjoy the mental fog floating away...
