My kids have had it and now I've got it. It's the first that I've been sick while on this drug. Do I need to go/contact the dr or can I ride it out at home? Low grade fever/sore throat/headache etc. Thanks

Yes, you should at least call your family doc to be on the safe side. Usually whenever I get sick with any sort of fever, I make an appt with my family doc. She will put me on antibiotics just to be sure I don't get anything else because of me being on 6mp.
