Side FX

hawgfan posted:
Good grief! Side fx haven't been unbearable but this morning fatigue, achiness, & getting winded so easily is NUTS! It seems that about lunchtime, I often get feeling a little better and get about 3 good hrs, then it's downhill until next morning. Sleep at night but very little rest...

I'm so sorry you are experiencing this! Have you had similar side effects before? Are there any medications to help you get some rest? (Lack of sleep makes everything worse...)

I'm just 4 wks into tx. I have some Lunesta which can help sleep but not so much on the whole rest issue. Thanks.

CALL YOUR TX MD AND GET SOMETHING TO HELP YOU WITH ALL SIDES.....GOOD SLEEP IS SO VERY VERY IMPORTANT ON TX....YOUR BODY NEEDS TO REST AND REST WELL....WHEN WERE YOUR LAST LABS? GETTING WINDED IS GOOD SIGN THAT YOUR HEMOGLOBIN IS GOING DOWN?

PLEASE PLEASE CALL MD AND LET THEM KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON...

IF THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON THEY CAN NOT HELP YOU

Thanks Tiff. I am having weekly CBCs until I see doc on 5/11, keeping watch on hemoglobin, platelets, wbc mainly. So far, they are all a little low but still above the 'do something' line. I just got labs drawn today - my Wednesday routine. I will let my doc know about side fx. Thanks!
