Acthar Gel Side Effects

Acthar Gel Side Effects

Has anybody injecting Acthar gel had difficulties with heat intolerance and excessive sweating? Just wondering because I'm finding this the one thing that might keep me from continuing this medication.

I have had low grade fever and sweating for about 2 years. Starting MX, sulfasalazine, and plaquinel has reduced it. My Rhuematologist said the low grade fevers are a symptom of RA itself.

That is not a treatment I have heard of for RA. I just looked it up and it said it was for MS. I do have some additional sweating from methotrexate.
Sorry, couldn't help more.

Methotrexate does make me sweat but the Acthar gel is worse. It is an ms drug but used off liable for those who are unable to take prednisone.
