Day 8 terrified still of side effects but ALL minor to date! Feeling upbeat at times then exhausted at others. Moving around more, smaller appetite, some warmth feelings and chills but as mentioned minor. Take with food and water, I take a probiotic and other supplements, stationary bike 1 - 2 mile 4xweek. Homeschool autistic son, great for my mind. Mobility went way down this past year(walker/wheel chair) and time for treatment.
I had been on Rebif 7 years but could not tolerate it any more. That was 3 years ago. Start date date of tecfidera August 29, 2013. Full speed ahead with this med. Well wishes to you all.
I've been on Tecfidera for about 3 months...
I never had any flushing while on the starter kit (low dose). As soon as I went to the higher dose, I had a lot of flushing and itching. Every once in a while this still happens but Benadryl clears it right up. Also, with the higher dose, I have begun spotting and/or lightly cramping. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
