Tecfidera Or Gillenia

Tecfidera Or Gillenia

Need some help making a really hard choice? Originally I had ruled these drugs out. But after reactions to 1 drug and dr saying I need something stronger bc Copaxon is not working I am stuck with only these 2 options for now to chose from. Please give me some insight

Was on Tecifidera for almost 2 years. Doctor took me off it dye to my white blood cell count staying too low. Going to Gilenya in a few weeks.

Hi, I took tacfidera and it was really hard on me and gave me big liver problems. I am on Gylenia right now and have been for the past three months. No side effects that I am aware of. Hope this helps.

I have been on tecfidera for 3 years now and so far so good. These meds have different effects on different people.

I was given the choice of tecfidera or Gilenya and I initially chose tecfidera because Gilenya had possible alopecia (hair loss) among it's side effects. In the end I couldn't take tecfidera after a month. The gutt related side effects were just horrible. I've been on Gilenya for 6 maybe 7yrs now.
