I've been on Tec for 4 months now. Only side effects were flushing three hours after taking it and that lasted for about 1 month. Minor stomach upset for about 1 month also...barely even noticeable --now gone. Better than taking daily shots of Copaxone. Grateful to have this medication and the patient assistance program.

Just ordered third bottle of tecfidera, and this is probably the best day I have had. Have been nauseated for almost ten weeks, BUT things seem to be getting better as time progresses. Going to stay with this one more month, and hope things continue to get better. I must say AT LEAST it is'nt dispensed in a syringe!

I've been on this for 5 months and I'm happy. Used to be on Copaxone but the doc said it wasn't helping me as well as it should. Now, no issues with my MS since starting tecfidera. The only side effect that I have experienced is the flushing, which starts about 30 minutes to 2 hours after taking the pill. It feels like my skin and blood are getting hot in my face, neck, and shoulders ... Show Full Comment
