Dimethyl fumarate Polpharma


dimethyl fumarate

This medicine is authorised for use in the European Union.


Dimethyl fumarate Polpharma is a medicine used to treat multiple sclerosis (MS), a disease in which inflammation damages the protective insulation around nerves (demyelination) as well as the nerves themselves. It is used in adults with a type of MS known as relapsing-remitting MS, where the patient has flare-ups of symptoms (relapses) followed by periods of recovery (remissions).

Dimethyl fumarate Polpharma contains the active substance dimethyl fumarate and is a ‘generic medicine’. This means that Dimethyl fumarate Polpharma contains the same active substance and works in the same way as a ‘reference medicine’ already authorised in the EU called Tecfidera. For more information on generic medicines, see the question-and-answer document here.
