I play golf and find this medication affects my body in the sun and heat. Very week feeling like a piece of spaghetti and am unable to continue playing. As for the fatigue, hasn't helped much. Am still as tired as before the medication.

I've been taking it for one month. Seems to be helping with the fatigue & I seem to have a little more energy. Especially after being on Avonex (9 yrs), which really zaps me & makes me achy the day after the injection.
