In September I switched from Rebif injections to the Tecfidera capsules, and as much as I love not having to inject anymore, the Tecfiera side effects (as I’m sure most of you know) are pretty crappy. I’ve actually found in the last couple of weeks that I’ve had trouble with a sort of vertigo-like dizziness, nausea, forgetfulness, dysphasia, and painful spasms in my arms and legs, which tend to leave my hand in a sort of claw shape for a while. This is all a bit worse than what I had before starting the pills, and things like fatigue and general pain were worse with the Rebif, so I don’t want to switch back.
I was just wondering if any of you guys had decided to go drug free for a bit, because I’m seriously considering this. I just feel that my current symptoms aren’t severe enough for the drugs to be worth while, but I’m also aware that it may just seem this way because I’ve been constantly medicated, and it’s holding the worse stuff at bay.
I’m seeing my neuro at the end of this month, and I’ll bing it up with him then, but what do you guys think?
