I am about to start on BG-12 (Tecfidera) this week. It is the newest of the oral DMDs and has just been approved in Australia and is available only on the Product Familiarisation Programme from the drug company. Because I was one of the very few people in the world to be treated with Cladribine before it was pulled off the market it has meant I am now very limited in what I can take because of the way Cladribine works. So all the Cladribine cohort were promised to be the first to get BG -12.
I am just waiting on the results of some blood tests and then assuming they come back OK I will start the BG -12 later this week. Because it is such a new drug and not many people are on it yet I was wondering if people would be interested in hearing one person’s experience with it or not?
If there is enough interest I’ll do a regular post on here so you can see how things go with it… but do remember that it will only be my experience and so not representative of how other people might find the drug.
