Gilenya and rash

Postby jenf » Wed Feb 19, 2014 1:55 pm

Hi everyone,
I started Gilenya on January 20th. About two weeks ago I noticed a rash that has now spread all over my body (small itchy bumps that are hard to see, but can be felt). Last week my neuro wanted me to start a once every other day dose and take benadryl at night. One week later and no improvements so they're taking me off it. Has anyone else had this reaction? I had something similar with Tecfidera, but that rash was isolated to my back and was slightly different.

RRMS - dx 06/09
LDN - 4.5mg 06/09-present
Copaxone - 06/10-09/10
Avonex - 06/12-06/12

Late Stage Lyme - 12/10
Too many meds to list!!

Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday..
