In 2014, emaxheath.com reported that more than half of patients taking Tecfidera required over-the-counter medications to try and manage side effects such as vomiting and diarrhea. The site also reported that 25 per cent of patients who switched to Tecfidera from another MS treatment stopped taking the drug within three months.
I usually have side effects to everything, but not this. i had flushing of the face for one hour the first day and that was absolutely all.
but lucky me!! up till now, as medicare won't let me have it now. I am appealing.
tecfidera also has the benefit of being able to miss a dose, whereas many, if not most of the DMTs do not allow this. not that it is recommended, but your doctor won't have a hissy if you do.
