How often do you see diarrhea with MS? Is it more often constipation?

In brief: Bowel

Constipation far more common but diarrhea can be seen, especially when using either Gilenya (fingolimod) or Tecfidera.
However, co-morbidities may also be present, such as inflammatory bowel disease, and infections.
