Fertility and Aubagio

I read all about teratogenic effects for women who consumes Aubagio but I haven´t found anything in literature for men? How does Aubagio reflects on men semen, and do they need to pass therapy with active carbon like women if they are planing family? Konwing that spermatogenesis takes about 6 month.

Stuffy nose and sneezing on Aubagio

I have had a nasty cold since starting Aubagio 4 weeks ago. Is this a side effect? I am 36 and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2004. I really have no support with my disease. ## Hi there Angela. I was started on Aubagio a week ago now and I also have had a continuous blocked nose as well as all over flu-like symptoms. My normal aches and pains have doubled in intensity as well, and don't even get me started on the energy and mood dip. ??

Alcohol and aubagio

has anyone drank alcohol while taking aubagiohas? ## Hello, Peg! How are you? Generally, it is best to stay away from alcohol, when you are taking any prescription medication, due to the fact that it can greatly increase the side effects as listed by the FDA, so you may experience much more nausea, dizziness and drowsiness than usual. Thus, one drink may affect you the same as having had 2 and so on. If your doctor does approve of your having a couple drinks, please make sure that you will not be driving, or operating and potentially dangerous machinery. Is there anything else I can help with?

Feedback on Aubagio

Any feedback on risks of taking Aubagio if you have Multiple Hepatic or liver Hemangioma's? Is it liver "enzymes" that should be tested before going on Aubagio? Any other tests pre-Aubagio?

I've got enough illnesses/syptoms don't want to add to them... Thanks ## Aubagio is generally not recommended in someone with severe liver impairment, of any type, due to the fact that it has been known to have a detrimental effect on the liver.
