I was a bit sick with a cold when I went to Opdivo #4 yesterday.  Last night I lay awake with fever and cough and today the same, fever about 101. (Mine is usually 97 not 98.6).  It's not so  bad, just  keeping me dozing in front of the tv all day.  Is there any reason not to take ibuprofen or Sudafed?  I need to sleep tonight.  Thanks

I would take ibuprofen for sure. If fever and cough are not better soon I would call the nurse. I take ibuprofen as needed and I am on Opdivo.

When I was on the combo I ran fever for 6 weeks, horrible chills and sweats. I took motrin every 2 hours.

Thank you.  I don't often get a fever with just a cold.  It saps all the energy.
