I have RRMS that is progressing. I just had my second dose of Novantrone on 2/6. (My first was last October.) I was very sick (severe nausea, body ache, etc.) after I got the Novantrone for 3 weeks the first time. This time I'm now (today) starting to feel human again. My WBC count is low so I'm stuck in the house for 1, 2, or 3 weeks. Not sure.  My WBC was fine after my first dose.
My question is will the after effects of the Novantrone treatment lessen as I'm given additional doses?
BTW - I'm also using Copaxone with the Novantrone.

I can't help you with your question but I just wanted to come and offer some support. I hope you can get the white blood count back up so you are released from house arrest. That sounds awful. Novantrone is supposed to be good stuff. Please post and let us know how you feel on it.

Welcome to healingwell. I hope you find support and friends here. It is a great place to find both.
