Hi @emilymac I’m in a pretty similar situation to you – I was diagnosed (over the phone, thanks COVID) with RRMS ten days ago and was given the choice between Tecfidera and Aubagio. It was pretty overwhelming, even though I was expecting it, and I’ve been on a very steep learning curve since then!
You’ve come to the right place – this site is great – you can do a search on the DMDs you’ve been offered and see what people have been saying – and everyone is so supportive and lovely. I also found Dr Aaron Boster’s short videos on YouTube really really helpful, I’d recommend them. I also emailed a few follow-up questions to my MS consultant (whom I’ve not yet met) and got helpful replies. I talked to my GP and to my acupuncturist (her partner has MS). All the feedback I got really helped me decide on Aubagio – I feel it fits in best with who I am and my lifestyle. Haven’t started yet as I only emailed my consultant with my decision yesterday.
Anyway just wanted to say hello and welcome to the club no one wants to be a member of…
