Y Hello everyone
im in need of some advice. I’m currently on Tecfidera and have been for over two years now my cell count is low but apparently not to low to have to stop,however I’m getting infectious throat ones, it was manageable when I was getting them every couple of months or so but now their every Two weeks not sure if my bloods have gotten any lower, I have a blood test for a weeks time.
Im getting very fatigued and feel ill for about four days and then feel slightly better and that’s when I notice a white ulser on the back of my throat.
My problem is I’m going on holiday in four weeks time and really don’t want to be ill whilst I’m away so am considering swapping to another DMD does anyone know how long it takes Tecfidera to leave your system.?
Can you swap straight away or do you have to wait a while first?
What should I swap to ?
I would prefer another pill version but it’s not rated as good as some others about 40% I think.
I know injectables are better, but the side effects worry me especially as I’m going away abroad.
Is their anyone here that has taken them and had positive experiences?
I would be most grateful.
