I've read that one of the side effects of Ocrevus is increased risk of respiratory infection and respiratory issues. I have sleep apnea, lung disease and have gotten bronchitis (needing antibiotics) every fall/winter for as long as I can remember. While I'm waiting to hear back from the pulmonologist, can anyone on Ocrevus with lung issues give me some feedback before I make the decision to start it?
With Abaugio I get bad upper respiratory infections have been in WE twice with pneumonia! WE doctor said ND pill is compromising my ability to fight infections. Had 2 rounds of antibiotics n my primary told me to go to ER!
I am taking Ocrevus. The second full infusion I ended up with an upper respiratory infection. My neurologist blew if off and said it was going around. We will see after my next infusion.
I had it while on Abaugio never on Copaxone thought daily shots were rough.
I'm taking Retuxin too and have had RSP infections as well as a bladder infection that took two cycles of antibiotics. Fun stuff.
