Review by Alaska2015 (taken for 1 to 2 years):
For Multiple Sclerosis: First, it's not a shot! Second, side effects are easily controlled (eat something with some fat content, take allergy med and baby aspirin before taking Tecfidera). If side effect occurs (flushing) it goes away quickly (15 mins or less). I was on Rebif before, and changed to Tecfidera about a year ago. Have seen no lesion activity in last few years (MRIs).

Review by Jennifer E:
For Multiple Sclerosis: It is my 1 st medication since diagnosed in 3/13. Just had my 14 month check up MRI, No new lesions. It is hard to adjust to for some people, but if you stick it out by month 3 it starts to get better.
