Hi I’m looking for some advice if poss…. I have been on copaxone for 10 years and the sight reactions are much worse which has made me seek alternative DMTs. I’ve chosen Tecfidera and got the green light so just waiting on starting. My issue is I work in public facing role for civil service and have been working from home since March due to the gov saying I’m in vulnerable group which has been fine. I would be looking at going back to work if still on copaxone, But now looking at goverment website will I be in the extremely vulnerable category once I start new meds as it states people who are taking immunosuppression drugs! I know that the MS nurses won’t tell you to shield on Tecfidera and it’s difficult to explain what the drug does in your body! My boss is Saying he will be putting me in the next category and I’m fighting it trying to explain that the drug isn’t suppressing my immune system but am I right? It does in a way? It means I won’t get to go back to my workplace for the foreseeable future and have to work for another department which I’m not relishing….
can anyone help and explain Tecfidera a bit and which category are we in?
