Can anyone tell me of some of their side effects of Neulasta and anything that might have helped.
Thank you

Here is a discussion about neulasta side effects which gives a tip for handling back pain, which is a side effect that most people experience:

I didn't have a chance to try this trick and I just waited for the pain to go away on its own but I hope the trick works for you :-)

I hated that stuff, the leg pains were not good. i was told to take Claritin first thing in the AM on the day of the shot. And continue on taking it for 3-4 days. It helped, cut down pain by 50%. Nobody knows why it works but it does. Being at stage 4 with the tumors everywhere, I can pretty much get what I want from my Oncologist, within reason. So I got some 15mg Morphine tabs, knocked the pain out right away. I wasn't to useful for a few days but I wasn't useful with the pain anyway.

My son never had any side effects of the Neulasta. Actually we were really happy with this medication!


#5

I always got neuasta on a friday, and the whole weekend I wouldn't want to get out of bed. I felt extra weak from my bones hurting so much. It went away by Monday usually!

I also took Claritin (OTC) at least a few hours before the injection and then again on the following 2-3 days after the injection. I did well. Of course, it was not acknowledged by the physician and I do not know if it was the help, but I felt it was worth the try and I did not have trouble. Nice talking with you again. Debbie.

Thank you all. He actually had to switch to Neupogen. The difference was night and day, very minimal side effects.


#8

Bone pain and I heard that Claritin D helps. Just found this out, sorry this is prob way to late since you posted 2014. Just seen this.

I had awful bone pain with neulasta. I used over the counter claritin which helped tremendously!
