I recently had a new consultant who has recommended Tecfidera as I can’t have intra muscular injections because I’m too thin, I’m on peg feed for about 70 percent of my diet and am still underweight she told me the side effects of Tecfidera were flushing she didn’t tell me the gastro ones, should I be starting this when I can’t eat a good meal before it and haven’t got the weight to loose from gastro problems is she just another rubbish consultant that would happily see my demise?

@prairiemarmot , no consultant wants to prescribe a costly medication that would do you harm.

Have a read through the previous forum posts on Tecfidera to see how others have taken steps to avoid this possible gastro side-effect :-

I’ve hardly had any side effects. Sporadic flushing but it’s fine. Bloods are taken every 3 months; no issue yet. Started in August 2017. Worth shot. Dan
