tecfidera is awesome.
some itching was sorted out with anti-histamines. stomach cramps with paracetamol.
hair loss has not been noticed, in fact quite the opposite, i swear my legs have gotten hairier!
(incidentally, i am of the male disposition)
if you insist on being anxious about any possible side effects, i would recommend the ultra mellow introduction process when using the 120mg pills: week 1 - 1 pill daily, 2 each day for week 2, 3 daily in week 3 and then the full dose only once in week 4. then switch the the full blown 240mg pills.
you have absolutely no need to fear anything and thus have little need for support nor even the acceptance of your condition in the minds of others. (although it would be nice…) so get on with it!
