My mom has had MS for 30 years and never been on medication. She is now wheel chair bound and needs assistance for every day life.
Better late than never I suppose. Tecfidera is for relapsing MS and truly from the information from the good guys/girls here: https://www.drugs.com/pro/tecfidera.html
There is no effective way that I can think of to convey all the information in that link to a couple of paragraphs without spending hours on it. The link above is for professionals but contains meaningful data from clinical trials but you will see a link for consumer information which will be shorter but provide less information.
Disease stage is not mentioned but clinical trials show good results. Sadly there is nothing yet that will make it go backwards and the cost is likely to be high. I'll try to get hold of my sister and ask what experience she has had with different medications (she has relapsing MS).
Good luck to your mom and you, Steve
