final infusion of lemtrada

i finished my final infusion of lemtrada on thursday and i’ve never felt so bad in my life. My lips and nails are blue, my neck and face is swollen and my mood is absolutely awful and i can’t sleep or sleep. Does anyone know how long the recovery time is?

@emwhiley9 , your body has just had a huge hit of medications. You expect to feel a little “tender” after a skinful. 😉

But seriously, apart from the Lemtrada, you have had a huge hit of Steroids, which can have the effect that you are experiencing. But, this will only be short-lived.

So, treat yourself gently and have someone look after you for a while as you recover.
