Tecfidera side effects

Postby LSITC » Mon Jun 16, 2014 8:04 am

I have been taking Tecfidera for three months. From the start I have had severe flushing, GI discomfort (taking 40mg omeprazole daily) loss of appetite and gradual onset of depression and general mental fogginess. The side effects got so bad that my neuro told me to cut back down to 240mg once daily for a month and see how I feel and to add anti-depressants to my daily drug cocktail.

On the plus side I had noticed an increase in energy levels
Anyone else finding this drug is causing mental issues?
