Low White Blood Count on Tecfidera
| Kim
I have been on Tecfidera for 13 months. I was very encouraged as the side effects were minimal and I had my first MRI with no new lesions after being on Tecfidera for 7 months. However, I just had a blood test that showed very low white blood cell count. My doctor said normal Lymphocyte is 1 to 4. Mine is .7. He said .5 is too dangerous and would have to come off Tecfidera. I need to take another blood test in 4 weeks to see if I have to come off Tecfidera. Dr. said that there is nothing I can do to raise my white blood count. Has anyone else on Tecfidera experienced this low white blood count?

I have been on Tecfidera for 18 months and my recent blood tests have shown abnormally low white blood cell counts while on this medication. My neurologist has taken me off of the drug stating it is not worth the risk. Going to repeat my blood work in 3 weeks to see if the wbc has rebounded and then pick another medication. Aside from the flushing and the hair loss I was pleased with the drug. No new lesions after a year of being on treatment. Not sure the drug has had enough clinical tria

I have been on Tecfidera for 8 months now. My white blood cells went to .6. My neurologist suggested I stop taking the pills for 3 weeks, which I did, and my white cells went up again. Now I have been on Tecfidera for two weeks. After the next blood test I will know, what's the situation with my white blood. If the lymphocytes are down again, I will stop the pills.
I have also been very depressed and unpatient...

My wife has been told to stop taking Tecfidera due to low white count (around .6, I believe). Aubagio is next, once her white count stabilizes.

Would love to hear from someone who was on Rebif and who then went on tecfidera.

I have been on tecfidera for 7 months, and just remembering to take these pills each day is a problem. I never not take them, but if I had to be sure to take them at a certain time during the day I would be in big trouble. I take it in the morning sometime between 9 and 11 and then I take it at night, some time between 6 and 8. This concerns me because I know you should be taking it at the same time each day. I don't know how this affects the benefits of this drug. I was taking Rebif and I

Me too. I had been on it 17 months. Went .8, .7, .64, .59 at which point I quit it. I will go back on copaxone after lymphocytes (hopefully) rebound.

Was doing well on Tecfidera but not worth the risk.

I am going to see my neurologist tomorrow as he will research this and let me know what we are doing. I LOVE the drug..NO MORE shots...and hope he does NOT take me off the meds

My doctor is thinking about switch me to Abagio from Betaseron. I was relieved when I saw that not everyone had hair loss.
