is my first diary of my journey about this new drug: Tecifidera. I
started it in the beginning of July but due to an allergic reaction I
had to stop. Most doctors don’t understand that I am allergic to
Benadryl (yes this is true), so now I just started again on July 26,
2013. This is my first week at 120mg. I will be taking this dose for a
month before I begin to take the 240mg dose. I want to kiss
my doctor; this is so smart to do this. I know this drug is expensive
but I feel more comfortable with this way of thinking.
It’s funny when you think about
it, your immune system
starts in your stomach. That may be why so many
symptoms are there and that makes me feel better. I feel like this drug
might be the way to go. It is a different way of thinking about MS and
a different way of treating it.
You may get some help
with your co-pays by calling MS Active Source for programs that might be
available to you as well as Biogen who can help as well.
Until next week, wish me luck!
