tecfidera and contraception

Hi There

I am wondering if there is anyone who is currently on Tecfidera and still taking the contraceptive pill?

I have checked online and I am really kind of getting mixed reviews about this one, there doesn’t seem to be a definite yes or no to this one?

Thanks

Andrea

Yep, I am. The tecfidera booklet (from the manufacturer) I got when I started, states that “Tecfidera and your oral contraceptive pill can be taken together but if you experience any diarrhoea, check the package leaflet that comes with the pill and follow the guidance given around GI problems”.

Did you manage to find more information? In the leaflets that the MS Nurse gave me there is written that Tecfidera can interact with the pill and to chose a different method. But then the Neurologist said it was fine. So I’m very confused!
