MS symptoms: Reality of Tecfidera

images-1It has been a month since I began Tecfidera and things are going far better than expected. There have been days when I thought I was having a side effect from the medication but those symptoms had other possible roots. So who’s complaining? Not me.

I gave up the antihistamine after two weeks. The other day I forgot to eat the apple sauce with the medication and… nothing happened. So I skipped it again, and… nothing happened. I take an aspirin with the morning pill only. Aside from a few added pounds, likely from eating all the apple sauce, I am a happy camper.
