Hi, I was diagnosed December 2010 with RR MS and started Avonex the following November due to a number of relapses. I saw my neuro recently for review and he has put me forward to have another MRI. He has also suggested I change my medication to Tecfidera or Gilenya as he said they are known to have a higher percentage rate of relapse reduction than the Avonex.
So I have looked into both and really don’t know what to do. I understand that Tecfidera side effects can be very unpleasant with stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting etc. With Gilenya I am aware I would have to have my heart monitored for 6 hours after initial dose but would be open to all sorts of infection as the immune system is suppressed whilst on this.
I know everyone is different but would like to know of your experiences please…knowing my luck I’d have the nausea etc and really don’t know how long I could put up with that. Tia
