My new neuro wants me to consider moving from using Avonex to Tecfidera. I’ve had RRMS for 17 years and have been on Avonex since 2003. I’ve never had any problems with it apart from occasional mild flu-like symptoms. I’ve started to get some injection site reactions in the past year that don’t clear but nothing too bad. My MS has the occasional flare up of symptoms (slight drop foot, numbness) but I’ve had only 3 or 4 relapses since I gave up my very stressful job 7 years ago My last MRI scan showed some active lesions but it was taken straight after my last flare up.
So, now I’m having to weigh up the pros and cons of making this change in meds and would really appreciate hearing from anyone else who has gone from Avonex to Tecfidera.
Thanks and Happy New Year to you all.
