Tecfidera – I am allergic to it.

I have been told today that I can’t continue with the Tecfidera. Apparently my bloods indicate that I am allergic to it. My oesenophils were up at 3.5 ( normal range 0.0-0.6) just when I thought I was getting settled on it.!!! So after a cleansing break, I will be starting Copaxone.

@pikilily , isn’t that a step backwards for you? Weren’t other options discussed with a similar, or better, efficacy?

@stumbler Not really no. I do have time to research, but Copaxone is what the Consultant has recommended. I have a clotting disorder so that rules out some of the DMTs. He wanted me to have Tec initially because it wouldn’t involve injections and therefore potential bruising and scarring.. I will ask. The other frustrating thing is I received a supply of Tec today.. this will have to be chucked… thousands of pounds down the drain!!!

Oh @pikilily I am sorry, what dreadful luck. I hadn’t really considered that allergies to treatments were a possibility, how frustrating! Will you really have to throw it away? It seems like there should be a better option but at the same time maybe it’s unavoidable? Anyway I hope your able to find something more suitable without any issues 😊
