    Medicine for low white blood cell count

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Daily shots for 10 days following chemo are painful for me. I am so over needles for shots and blood draws. I take 10mg of Claritin to help minimize bone pain it does help. I take Diludid for pain once the Claritin wears off.

    Easy to Do: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
