Tecfidera or Gilenya

I’m having a hard time between choosing to take Gilenya or Tecfidera. The PML virus scares the mess out of me, and I’ve been struggling with ON for almost a month now, so the possible vision changes of Gilenya concern me as well. Can anyone share their experience with either medication?

@lavishlyg , there are risks with most DMDs that we take for our MS.

When risks are formally known as they are with Gilenya and Tecfidera, you will be monitored so that treatment can be stopped if your risk factors increase.

This monitoring should mitigate those risks. 😉
