Here is My Question:
Can I take cortisone pills while on Tecfidera?
Cortisone (a steroid pill) pills may be taken with Tecfidera. However, long term, combined treatment of steroids (Cortisone, prednisone, methylprednisolone or dexamethasone to name just a few types of steroids) with Tecfidera may increase your risk of infections, which may be serious.
