Tecfidera

Hi, I start tecfidera on monday,the information pack says take low dose for 7 days then go onto higher dose.

The tablets came saturday and only have 4 weeks of low dose.

Is this correct or should I ring the drug company ?.

Please see my answer to your question in the Tech and spots thread

Hi I started tec last week . Don’t know what area you come under but I was told they have increased it from one week to four on the low dose .

Hi I come under addenbrookes in Cambridge so might be the same.

good luck with it all x

My MS nurse rang and you are right Linda,they now do 4 weeks on the low so you can adjust to any side effects.

Fingers crossed won`t get any.

when switching from low dose to high, you can simply take double the number of (120mg) capsules
