Well today’s the day. After waiting around nine months, I have picked up my meds and am about to start Tefidera today
I have been reading through everyone great advice about taking it but am a bit confused (doesn’t take much!) The advice I was given was to take tablet an hour after breakfast…have most of you tried that and found sandwiching between breakfast best?
Also, It was suggested taking a high protein breakfast like eggs but would you say porridge works just as well if not better?
i have been given a months supply of 120g and one month of 240g but I think I shall be following the gradual increase route, rather than two 120g for a month then jumping up to two 240g…makes sense to introduce something like that slowly…like I did with Gabapentine. I have also been warned that side effects peak in week three then again a couple of weeks later before easing off. However not sure if they meant on lower dose or higher dose. Being my third DMD I shall cross my fingers for side effects passing quickly!
Thank you if you can help with my questions, I know there has already been many about Tecfidera lately but it is a bit scary with my previous side effect problems.
