Hi @henrietta, I’m sorry to hear about your recent diagnosis. I was on Tec for 3 years and for 2 years I had no new lesions which was unheard of for me! I suffered with hot flushes for the 3 years but I was so pleased my MS wasn’t progressing. I had no other side effects. The flushes could be uncomfortable, frustrating and embarrassing sometimes but certainly not unbearable. Aspirin (and antihistamine) can help prevent them, so if I didn’t want to worry about having a flush, I’d have an aspirin in advance. I tended to get them around 4 hours after taking my tablet. Good luck with your choice, and if you do go for tec please do feel free to get in touch if you have any specific questions!
