I’m new to this, but would really appreciate people’s advice on tecfidera/deciding on a DMD. I’ve been struggling with this decision for a few weeks now. I had one attack last October, which was disabling, but am now pretty much completely recovered, with no hangover symptoms. I have been trying to decide between the UK first-line drugs i.e. tecfidera vs injectables. To sum it up, my head tells me that tecfidera is the most effective and I should opt for that, and my neuro has subtly hinted (which is about as strong as they seem willing) that it is the most sensible choice, but I am very anxious about the PML link and evolving risk profile: the unknowns. I feel fine at the moment, and the part of me that’s scared just wants to take copaxone, even though I know it is less effective. Rightly or wrongly, I’m finding it very difficult to adjust myself psychologically to actually wanting to take tecfidera. Anyone else struggling with this? Any advice?
