I am very close to committing to Tecfidera as my DMT treatment but would love to hear from anyone already on it to share their experience of taking it.


Hi Wibbly Wobbly

I have been on Tecfidera since August 2015, and it is the first DMT I have taken. I was diagnosed in May last year. I was very anxious at first but I have to say I have been fine so far. The first couple of months I had a few tummy issues but nothing that stopped me going to work. I had a little indigestion and nausea and took Zantac to help with this.

At first I tried to keep approx 12 hours between tablets and made sure I had a big breakfast, but after about 3 months I was able to have a smaller breakfast and now just have a little cereal or a piece of toast. I have also taken the tablets at lunch time then again after my evening meal.

I still have random flushing. It can be days in between flushes and I can see no pattern, but other than that it’s all good.

Good luck!


Thanks for reply. Good to know it is not too bad for you. I have decided to go for it as doing nothing is more of a worry. Thanks again.


hi wibbly

take your tec halfway through a meal, sort of trapping it between 2 lots of food.

i have omeprazole on standby for when i feel nauseous.

once you have a couple of weeks under your belt it’s plain saiing.
