Tecfidera or Ocrevus

Good morning all. I was diagnosed October last year with RRMS at 52. I was offered 6 different DMD treatments wish I chose a Ocrevus but the MS nurse came back to me and said that my neurologist won’t let me have it so I opted for tech Tecfidera. My question to all you lovely people is., what are your experiences of both drugs and am I worse off having being declined Ocrevus. To be honest I didn’t mind what drug I had so long is was the most effective. TIA.

@hayley_criddle , I would give my vote to Ocrevus being the most efficacious. You may also find that the six-monthly infusions are less onerous than a twice a day tablet. There's some details about both treatments here :- https://www.mstrust.org.uk/a-z/ocrevus-ocrelizumab https://www.mstrust.org.uk/a-z/tecfidera-dimethyl-fumarate You can also select the appropriate "tags" that have been added automatically at the foot of your post above to see previous comments on these treatments.


Thank you for your feedback. My first choice was Ocrevus for that very reason but after being offered it by the MS nurse, my neurologist said no.
