    High fever 1m post Lemtrada?

    I received my first round of Lemtrada about a month ago (11/12-11/16) and have gone without many issues until this week.

    I started feeling flu-ish on Wednesday and woke up at 3 a.m. Thursday with a 101.4 fever. Went to the clinic and tested negative for flu, they think itís a virus.

    Iíve been taking dayquil/nyquil/ibuprofen just to manage day to day. Sometimes the meds do not touch my fever and this morning it was at 102.6.

    Iíve called my one to one nurse and neuroís med assistant. Canít get a firm or actual answer from anyone. Is there a protocol for a high fever post Lemtrada? Thanks.

    Hello Kelsey 23 I donít take lemtrada but probably wouldíve if they offered. Iím on Ocrevus. Was just hoping that your doing better as there hasnít been any responses ? Best of luck
    It was one agains't 2.5million toughest one we ever fought.


      Hi Kelsey - I'm wondering how you are doing. I've had two courses of lemtrada and I remember feeling worse the first time. I had a nasty sore throat. Make sure you are taking your acyclovir. I hope you check in and tell us how you are doing in general.
      Good luck and take care!
