tecfidera & low blood pressure?

Hi guys, was wondering if anyone has been affected with low blood pressure whilst taking tecfidera? I have recently fainted a couple of times and doctor said I have low blood pressure and is unsure if it’s my medication that’s causing it. Any help would be helpful, thanks in advance

my BP is too high; i wish tecfidera would help to reduce it then i could stop taking my other meds!

hi mrsG

you probably have low sodium levels.

my gp told me to eat salt (what?) makes sense so i can now eat a bag of ready salted crisps on doctor’s orders!

or even a bag of chips - may as well have a fish on it.

it’s horrible when it makes you faint.
