I was diagnosed with relapsing remitting MS back in 2007. My relapses used to average one every 4 years until last year. I was fine for a year after having my daughter then had two relapses within a couple of months. It was the first time I qualified for a disease modifying drug. They put me on copaxone but I couldn’t handle the injections, so only lasted 3 weeks and we couldn’t try anything else because we wanted another baby. I had another relapse earlier this year while I was pregnant with my son and they want me to go on another disease modifying drugs. I ruled out the infusion and injections so we are looking at tecfidera. Has anyone tried it? What was your experience? Did you get side effects and if so how long did they last? Xx

I am on Tecfidera. I tried Avonex, beta-feron and Rebif. I had a real issue with the Avonex as it was a thick needle. I used the Auto-inject option with it but still couldn't handle it. I also had the Rebif injections with it's own auto- inject function but "needle night' would often cause me distress and quite often cause rather large bruises. I then went onto Tecfidera about 4yrs ago. I can honestly say that I haven't had any side-effects from it apart from flushing 2hrs after taking it Hope this helps


I was also diagnosed in 2007 Nic x
