I have more energy, can see clearer, feel happier and overall I feel the medication is helping me in my day to day life. I also seem to get more out of my exercise routines, and lost a bit of weight (bonus).

I love having to only take a pill instead of shot. I love that I dont have any sideffect form the medication, very well tolorated.. ONly issue is every once in awhile I have an allergic reaction to it and I take a benadryl and that takes care of it as fast as it came on..

Comment:
I have been on tecfidera 6 months now and my only side effect has been slight hair loss. I never got sick at the 3 or 4 week time and I never experienced flushing. I'm one of the lucky few but this med has been much better for me than the previous one.
