    Medicine for low white blood cell count

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    My first Neulesta injection was horrible. It somehow seemed worse than the chemotherapy. I experienced migraine then rebound headaches. And the bone pain was severe. However, someone recommended Claritin. Just take one Claritin tab the day prior to your Neulesta injection and then the day of, and the day after. You will be surprised at how much better you will feel.
