There are thankfully many treatments to choose from. I initially opted for Rebif as Tecfidera was waiting for approval at the time of my RRMS Dx (June 14) as Neurologist was keen to get me onto a DMD as soon as possible. On Rebif for a year, I did experience increase in fatigue, and bad injection site reactions. Seven weeks ago I started Tecfidera, the first few days were differcult due to flushing and nausea, but after that no problems, touching wood! I honestly don’t know I am taking now. I have gained weight of which my Aunt kindly pointed out, thanks for that!!!
Personally, I would definitely choose an oral therapy over an injectable initially, if I had the choice. MS trust produce a great booklet on treatment choices. I know the side effects listed are scary, but not everyone experiences them. Your MS nurse and Neurologist will be great for advice, and if you try one and don’t get on with it, try something else. Wishing you all the very best. Sarah x
