i’ve been taking tecfidera for about 5 or 6 weeks.
week 1 on lower dose absolutely no problems at all.
week 2 - began full dose and cue the side effects!
not all tecfidera users get these side effects but i threw up 30 mins after taking my first full dose.
bravely i took it again the day after and was sick again.
the third day my throat felt raw from the stomach acid so i skipped a dose.
after that i tried having something substantial then the tecfidera then something else to eat immediately after the tec.
so breakfast - cereal, tecfidera, toast.
it’s kind of trapping the tecfidera between 2 lots of food.
i had the flushing twice, didnt notice it until my son said “mum you’re really red, REALLY RED!”
an aspirin sorted that out.
i’m sure your wife will be fine and please don’t second guess her side effects.
it is a powerful medication and i’m a delicate little flower (??) so that’s why i was sick but i love taking a powerful medication because i want my ms to get a good kicking.
