Starting Aubagio today. Really get nervous when I start a new med as I’ve had some pretty bad experiences in the past. Any feedback from folks who’ve taken or are currently taking Aubagio would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Hi snowgoose! Sorry for the delay in replying to your comment! I do hope you get some feedback from other community members about their experiences with Aubagio. While you are waiting on that feedback, I thought I would share this comparison of common treatments for MS symptoms and how they rank, compared to each other (including Aubagio) -- https://multiplesclerosis.net/treatment/comparison-reviews-of-drug-efficacy-safety/. One side effect that may be one to watch out for is hair loss. It doesn't happen to every person and it does taper off, but it can be a very emotional side effect to experience if you aren't prepared for it. That may not be much of a reassurance for you, but I wanted to share that information with you. Since this isn't your first experience with trying a new medication, I hope the list of potential side effects doesn't out you on edge (although, with you past experiences, I don't blame you if the list DOES put you on edge.) Here's some basic information about Aubagio that you have probably already learned (including side effects) -- https://multiplesclerosis.net/treatment/aubagio/. I do hope you get some insight from other members and I know that one thing people like about this medication is NO INJECTION! So, there's one thing in the 'pro' column! I hope your start with Aubagio has been smooth and side effect free thus far! Please keep us posted! Best, Erin, MultipleSclerosis.net Team Member.
