I have been using Tecfidera for over a year. Before that I was using Extavia. The Extavia made my depression much worse. So bad that I was hospitalised. Since using Tecfidera I have not had any depression. I am actually a more positive person. I have gained weight but I would rather carry with weight than the big dark cloud. I am a positive vote for the Tecfidera.
When I first taking this drug in January, my head felt like it would explode. Taking twice a day was to strong. I take one tablet a day for about 6month. My head is bald and I notice lumps on my head, It look like water in it. I'm going for MRI to have it checked out. My head does not feel normal ,my head feel a little space out. Any one out there feel the same way ?
I was on it for 2 1/2 years and I was glad not having to do the injections anymore. Six months into it, I started getting sore muscles-arms and legs mostly-had me limping a lot. Walking up or down stairs was a one step at a time procedure. I had to come off it in August because my WBCs were low and I was getting sick a lot (pneumonia twice this summer). No Tec since August and the muscle pain has gone. Feeling more like a normal person now.
went from copaxone to gilenya a couple years ago as I was having disability progression faster than expected and I go tired of the shots. Gilenya has slowed down the disability issue while stopping the exacerbtations or at least, my suspicion is it's making them less obvious. I have had no side effects I know of and my lab results are normal
I have been on Tecfidera a little over 2 years and have considerable hair loss where I can see bald patches and breakage. Has anyone gone off it and had their hair grow back? I hope so, because I'd like to go off it.
I've beehn on Tecfidera since May 2004. In October 2004 started getting UTI's once or twice a month
Tecfidera absolutely causes hair loss!
I didn't want to believe it would happen, and I let it happen for months, but I seriously have half the hair I used to have…despite all the vitamins, biotin, and fish oil I take. Tecfidera did this.
