Is a low grade fever typical. For two days I had 99.9 and then just a reg temp yesterday. Last night my husband started running a temp of 101.5 then it went back to 98.3 by this morning. I usually have trouble keeping my temp up to 98.6. I'm guessing this is quite common. Right?
Yes, unfortunately a slight fever is somewhat common while taking IFN therapy. I’ve spoken with patients who experienced 100-101F temps on and off for up to 72 weeks of treatment. If the doctor allows, take some aspirin or Tylenol for fever/aches and pains, and hang of for the ride,
