Gilenya and increased frequency of urination?

Postby julierobinsonOT » Tue Mar 11, 2014 5:20 pm

Hi -
I just started taking Gilenya a month ago, and thought I had developed a UTI. Cultures are negative, but I have been using the bathroom at least twice an hour over the past several days. Definitely worse shortly after I take my meds, and dissipates before I am ready for my next dosage. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, how did you manage it? I'm happy with Gilenya otherwise....

Hi Julie, I have been on Gilenya for 12 months and never experienced anything like that. Must be really awkward. Have you made any dietary changes recently that may have interacted with Gilenya?

No changes. My doc thinks it might actually be a relapse but I'm not convinced... thank you!
