Aubagio

Anyone have any experience of this? Been told I may have to come off Tecfidera due to low lymphocytes and this has been mentioned as a possible alternative? Any views? Thanks

Hi @ferryms I have been on Aubagio for a year and half and am very happy on it. It is the only DMT I have ever taken so I don't have much to compare to. My last MRI showed no progression. The only side effect I had was hair thinning at months 4-7. It is an overall thinning and not patchy at all. It is concerning when it happens but I am happy to report that it has all grown back. It is very easy to take the pill once a day and you can take it with or without food it doesn't matter. Good luck!

I had the same hair thinning as Spunky mentioned but mine lasted for 6 months. I have been on Avonex, Copaxone, Gilenya, as well. I'm happy with Aubagio.

Thanks @spunky and @js1420 got latest bloods back and the lymphocytes have gone back up so that is good but on flip side jc tested +ve so on the risk card for pml. Any advice on aubagio side effects re liver etc also does it not also work by reducing lymphocytes? Cheers

@ferryms you have to be tested monthly for first year and then every 3 months for liver damage.
