Has Anyone Been On Techfidera For A Long G Period Of Time & Stopped? My Neurologist Is Telling Me I Can Get Off It But Makes Me Anxious.

I’m 66. Have Ms for 30+ years. Been on Techfidera for 10+ years.

Hi, Jennie Lee!
As I said, I’ve been in it for 10+ years & the lesions in my brain have not changed since I’ve been on it.
At first the only symptom I got was flushing for maybe 15-20 min. then after a couple of doses- nothing.
Good luck!

Thank u JimmyB. We’ve discussed. Their thinking is my MRIs have been stable for 5+ yrs (no lesions). The age thing was never brought up so I’ll bring that
up. It sure be nice (physically & $$$) to get off it. I’m just scared.

To help you with this decision, consider asking your neurologist their why from taking you off a med you have been tolerating well that has been working for you. I've heard the age reason and it's a good one but it's more than reasonable for you to, at least, ask
