Side Effects Result in Skipped Doses

SideEffectsWe’ve all been there. A required medication causes such side effects we stare at the pill or shot and wonder if maybe skipping a day wouldn’t be so bad. Then one day turns into two and two turns into three and before you know it the last dose you took was more than a week ago. Okay so maybe 10 days ago. Who could blame us? Side effect quite frankly, suck! I understand the efficacy is best when taken as directed. At the same time the stomach pain from Tecfidera is so bothersome I simply want to enjoy a few days with visiting family without being in pain. I will go back to my regular routine… in a few more days.
