Tecfidera and weight loss
Hi, I have been on the Tecfidera for two months, I have lost 10lbs in that time. All my Docs have been informed and say if I hit 15, I need to contact them again. Actually I like the weight loss as I can afford to lose some. Not much more however. The Tecfidera has been awesome, no other issues with this medication, love it, so far...
I started taking Tecfidera in July. In the beginning I experienced the flushing and some constipation. Overall I have done really well on the drug. I wanted to know has anyone else expereinced weight loss on Tecfidera. I thought I was under stress, but this morning when I tried on some pants I realized it had to be something else. Finally, I decided to check the website. I'm 5'4 and I really can't afford to loose weight. Does anyone have any suggestions?
