Vumerity Vs Aubagio

Vumerity Vs Aubagio

I am currently in the choice of vumerity and aubagio. I tried one single dose of vumerity and it gave me the absolute worst migraine but my doctor says that is not a side effect. i think otherwise but who is to be sure. i have also read very very concerning reviews about aubagio. if anyone has any info of the two i would love to hear. thank you :)

My first MS medication was vumerity. I had to stop the medication on day 4. I experienced severe burning in my head, face, chest and arms along with severe migraine, left leg weakness that I did not have before, slurry speech, angry all the time, trouble thinking, balance/coordination problems, and difficulty breathing. I had experience a severe allergic reaction. Remember, just because I had a horrible experience doesn't mean you will as well! Good luck!

I’ve been on vumerity since aug 4 / 2021 and had a little bit of skin tingling a little but goes away and I haven’t had that side effect since first getting on it.
Otherwise, I don’t even know I’m taking it - I was in the beginning of a flare by the time my insurance approved it so that had nothing to do with anything but a lack of meds as I was just diagnosed with Ms 5 months ago.

I think they say 6 months? I don't really notice a difference in my body since starting it.

I take Vumerity and have been on it since the middle of May. I thankfully don't experience really any of the side effects. The few times I had, it was the flushing/body redness and itching and it went away after about an hour.
