It’s very annoying that many people do have similar trouble getting used to Tecfidera. Why the doctors don’t start people off much slower I don’t know!!
The other thing is that initially, you probably should have been told to sandwich the drug between two stodgy foodstuffs. Even if you have two smaller bowls of porridge. But definitely try to take the pill in between two things. The idea is that your stomach needs protecting from the drug.
It’s probably better to give your tummy a couple of days at least time to recover from the trauma it’s had. Better than just giving up on the drug altogether. If you can get hold of your MS nurse on Wednesday, do.
Otherwise, were you given a number for the delivery company? If so, try them for advice. It’s possible that between the two you could arrange for another supply of the 120mg capsules. Then start again, much slower, and protect your stomach better.
It’s so hard to be wrapping your head around the diagnosis, let alone having a severe upset stomach from the drug. Sometimes all you want is for someone to say ‘there, there’, give you a big cuddle and say ‘don’t worry’!
