Anyone Else On Vumerity?

Anyone Else On Vumerity?

Just started a few weeks ago on Vumerity. I'm curious to see if anyone else is taking it, and if so, any side effects? I've had hot flashes but I'm wondering if there is more in store.

I take gilenya.. Never a problem until now. I am told it can increase certain skin cancers. I just had a mole dug out of my chest.. Not fun. My doctor wants to switch me to vumerity or zeposia. I'm nervous to come off of gilenya. Been taking it since 2013. Before that it was daily shots of copaxone!!

I’ve been taking Vumerity since Feb. The main side effect I had was flushing. The first day it felt like my scalp and arms were slightly burning. But the side effect was only that strong on the first day and it lasted for about 15 minutes. Now, I only get a little tingle here and there. No gastric problems though.

I have to switch to Vumarity from Tecfidera for the same reason... I have been happy on Tecfidera for many years so this is very scary!
