If you’re familiar with MS, chances are you’re familiar with Tecfidera. It is the most prescribed oral MS therapy for relapsing MS globally. You may currently be taking Tecfidera or you may have heard about it when Biogen released a commercial that didn’t quite sit right with many MSers.
Like many drugs, Tecfidera comes with a laundry list of side effects. And at times, some may even be worse than the disease itself. For instance, I am currently taking Tecfidera and often experience flushing and digestion issues if I don’t eat a heavy breakfast full of fat. This leads to one my favorite Tecfidera hacks: I eat a ton of bacon in the morning. This helps me avoid the sudden onslaught of red, itchy skin, and most importantly, I get to eat bacon.
Of course, everyone’s experience is unique and we all have our own tips and tricks to deal with the medications we take. And that is why we’d like to hear from you.
