Tecfidera side effects

I'm almost 9 months in with taking tecfidera and I am still having side effects almost every day. I have diarrhoea, stomach cramps, and nausea almost daily. I also have intermittent flushing, itching and vomiting. It's very unpleasant. I am taking the tablets on a full meal, using immodium and simeticone when I need to but still finding it really hard going. I never felt this unwell when I was not taking any DMD, and my quality of life is really suffering. Does anyone have any tips on how to deal with this? I'm starting to conclude that this just is not the right medication for me. Has anyone else given up on a DMD because of side effects?
