Tecfidera and weight loss
| Verna
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...

Weight Loss
| Vanessa
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?

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

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 taking Tecfidera for 4 months. I like the weight loss, and the flushing and itching happen very occasionally now. I have had MS for 20 years, but this is the 1st medication I've taken. I think it's great compared to others I've read about.
