Should the MS drug Gilenya drop byCD4/CD8 count extemely low ?


I took Gilenya for 5 1/2 months and my CD4/CD8 profile has dropped to my absolute CD 4 Helper is 13, and my %CD 4 pos> lymph to 2.6. My doc took me off this drug for my MS, and is now wondering if I really have MS. Would this drug lower my count this much and should I worry?


Although you don't indicate what your CD4 count was before starting this medication, or whether you are on HIV meds or not, yes, this product can significantly decrease lymphocyte counts.
