Weight Loss
I have been on Tec 2 weeks and am experimenting weight gain w/ hunger.
Lilly  |  April 4, 2014
I started on the tec November 2013, and started dropping a little weight consistently until I stopped it just 2 weeks ago. I would have stayed on it but for the other side effects- debilitating nausea, headaches, tooth and gum lesions and pain and hair loss. When I was asked by someone if I had cancer (because of the weight loss) that was enough for me. I should have known better than to consume cleaning products even if they have "reformulated" it and put it in a capsule. I'm getting tir

Why Tec? I see no weightloss info on it...

I've been on Tecfidera about four months now and have lost 20 pounds. While I walk miles and miles every day and eat really well, I haven't really changed diet or exercise.

I've been on Tec for over 3 months now. I've lost about 15lbs w/o dieting or much exercise. Going to see the dr soon

Tecfidera
Pam I also am experiencing extreme fatigue. I am not sure if it's just my MS or if the drug is making it worse. I feel like my arms and legs have weights attached to them.
Ann  |  March 11, 2014
I recently switched from Copaxone, after 10 years. I had no injection sites left. I have been on Tecfidera about 7 months. My recent MRI scans is stable. I still flush, intermittently, several hours after meals. Benadryl handles it well. The major side effect that I have is extreme fatigue. This is different than my normal MS fatigue. I am trying to stick with it to see if after time, it subsides. Hope this helps!

Hi Marcia, I do not take Tecfidera but am considering it. I have taken copaxone for over ten yrs. now and have had some flares with optic neuritis, heavy legs with difficulty walking and some fat destruction in my legs where shots are done but Copaxone seems to be working and I feel very stable. I do try to stay out of the sun and to keep my stress as low as possible (read Bible for this every p.m.). I am looking into Tecfidera as I would like to stop taking shots daily. jane
