I am SO happy to read your post!!! I could never thank you enough, really. I started Tecfidera 12 days ago & was ready to throw in the towel over the weekend, which I now feel would not have been in my best interest.
I am 46, have had MS for 21yrs & have been on just about every DMD there is, Copaxone, Rebif, Chemo, Tysabri, Rituxan, Plasmapheresis & monthly steroids for a couple years. Most recently I had gone back to Copaxone because I had zero side effects & knew I needed to be on something. I stayed on each of these meds until either they stopped working for me or I developed antibodies to them.
I feel like I have spent my MS journey throwing darts @ a dartboard & trying to hit the bullseye. I am very hopeful that the Tecfidera will be that for me & I am forever in your debt for letting me know not only that the side effects get better, but that there can be a rainbow on the other side.
Thank you!! I am so happy for you that the Tecfidera has been so good to you. I just have not read many good news stories from Tecfidera users & your timing could not have been more perfect for me. Look for my update in a year
