Stomach pain in the middle of the night from the Tecfidera led me to wonder what the long-term effects of this medication will be on my gut. Apple sauce used to keep side effects at bay and does manage the flushing but oh, the stomachaches. I’m down to 120 mg dose once a day. Playing with the timing has led me to an afternoon pill time, which means stomachaches hit when I am asleep, unless they wake me up. This morning I decided to see if by chance any new medication has come out. I’m sure if you have MS you have mornings like this and do your own searches knowing full well what the answer is but that glimmer of hope keeps us looking.
