I was fine on the 120 pill twice a day. Now that it was doubled to 240 pill twice a day, am experiencing chronic diarrhea, vomiting and flushing. I am only 3 weeks into medicine. What to do?
Same thing for me. I ended up asking my doctor to restart me on Tecfidera 120 mg bid for a month, with the goal of my body being able to tolerate the 240 mg dosage. It worked for me. I was more or less symptom free for three years (except for the flushing part). My doctor didn't really want to try this, but I held firm and he relented. I knew I didn't want the other drugs because of their side effects. My WBC count has been really low (as low as 1.6) but it has improved. Changes during the year. Good luck and I hope this answer finds you feeling better.
