Virus/bacterial infections post Lemtrada

Round 1 lemtrada
Do you treat bacterial infections with antibiotics? What’s your experience with anyone you has gotten sick with bacterial or viral infections post lem?

Hi @nattied13
I had long lasting bronchitis after both rounds of lem, which required treatment with antibiotics

Post Lemtrada things like this are treated in exactly the same way as they would had a person not had lemtrada.
I’ve had winter lurgy after both rounds 1 and 2 and treated with over the counter cold remedies and medicinal rum and orange juice …. both times caught from my husband rather than from some random germy plague monster

Thank you! I’ve recently come down with a fever and feel awful!

I had first round of Lemtrada last December and had a chest infection post 3 weeks and had to have I.V antibiotics with a night stay in hospital. I have also had a throat infection and was treated with oral antibiotics and a chesty cough. Not sure if this all due to dodgey immune system or just bad luck,
Hopefully am now on the mend as i do not want to rely on antibiotics to feel ‘normal’!
