Discuss Tecfidera (BG-12, dimethyl fumarate) as an oral treatment for multiple sclerosis.
I was on Tysabri for 6 years. I stopped and started Tecfidera. I was on Tec for 4 months and then I had two low white blood cell counts.
The week of the last WBC lab the skin on my hands and feet started peeling. My neuro had me stop taking carbamazepine and Tec. That was over a month ago. Last week after a skin biopsy it was diagnosed as Psoriasis. In Germany they treat Psoriasis with fumaderm.
I see neuro next week and hopefully I can get started on some DMT. I am JCV+. But now they can determine the amount (tither number)
I also read about a test of spinal fluid for JCV.
The strangest thing about all of this is the Psoriasis, I never had skin problems until Tecfidera.
