Has anybody else been taken of Tecfedera due to a very high white cell blood count. Following a recent chest infection which was confirmed as cleared up following blood tests after taking antibiotics,my GP advised me to come of Tec as my white blood cell count was very high. Over Xmas I have had severe pain initially in my lower back ribs and hips which has moved up to between my shoulder blades. The pain is severe every three hours and just about bearable following taking meds. I currently have been prescribed codeine, Pregabalin 25mg twice a day and 1x 5mg diazepam once a day. I also take paracetamol when taking the codeine. My MS nurse has recommended steroids and my GP gave me a script for these yesterday so hopefully this 5 day course will relieve the pain.
I was was just wondering if any fellow RRMS sufferers have similar issues with Tecfidera (high white cell count).Been diagonised with RRMS 1year and on Tecfedera around 8 months
