I have been taking Tecfidera for about seven months, the first week I had an upset stomach most of the time, its not bad now. I think the heat of summer didn't help. Also I found taking it after eating is best.

I've been on Tecfidera for three weeks. No flushing but swelling in my lips, mild GI distress, headache. Having used shots for Betaseron and Avonex, the pills are a welcome alternative.
