Managing Symptoms & Side Effects
General side effects can happen when biological therapy is given to any area of the body, but they depend on a number of things, including how or where it is given and the specific biological therapy used, the size of the area being treated and the type of biological therapy being administered. Most common side effects include:
- flu-like symptoms
- severe allergic reactions
- lowered blood counts
We offer ways for you to document, track, recognize and reduce your symptoms and side effects. Even with all these resources available, we want to remind you that it’s still important to discuss your symptoms with your healthcare team.
