Dimethyl fumarate 240mg is a medication used to treat multiple sclerosis (MS), a chronic disease that affects the central nervous system. It belongs to a class of drugs called immunomodulators, which work by reducing inflammation and suppressing the immune system.
The medication is taken orally, usually twice a day, with or without food. It is important to take the medication exactly as prescribed and to never take more or less than the prescribed dose.
Dimethyl fumarate 240mg may cause some side effects, including flushing, nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and headache. It may also cause more serious side effects, such as a decrease in white blood cell count or liver problems. If you experience any severe or persistent side effects, be sure to contact your doctor or healthcare provider.
As with any medication, dimethyl fumarate 240mg may not be suitable for everyone. It is important to discuss any medical conditions, allergies, or other medications you may be taking with your healthcare provider before starting treatment. It is also important to inform your healthcare provider if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding, as the medication may harm an unborn or nursing baby.
