I am several months into taking tecfidera now, and aside from the initial adjustment month I have (very luckily!) practically zero side effects. This includes when I have had to take it without food (forgot to take pills with lunch, etc). I was wondering… I was told to take it with food, to tolerate it better, but if I’m not having side effects, can I just take it without? Or is there something I’m not understanding, ie does the drug need the fats or proteins to bind with to work properly?
