I have had no flushing, but many gastro-intestinal issues while on the full dose of 2 capsules 2 times/day. This is very hard to handle while working full time. I am ready to give up and return to Avonex.

I have been on this drug for alittle over a month with very little side effects. The only one I get is the flushing but not bad, my provider told me to take tylenol prior to taking the med and it works. Better than taking a SHOT.

I take one pill in the am and one at night it interacts with nothing I am taking. The flushing and abdominal cramps went away after the first month of my treatment with Tecfidera!

On it for 3 months - have all the known side effects of flushing, gastro intestinal gurgling and nausea but was wondering if anyone had experienced increased/irregular heart beat? Its been going on for about a week now. I need to see the doc about it.
