Neupogen Side Effects

I’m sure the staff at Northwestern has advised you of this, but the primary side effect you can expect from Neupogen is a deep pain/ache in the large bones, like your femur, etc. This is caused as the marrow in your large bones is super activated producing white blood cells. I received probably 15 Neupogen shots for neutropenia, and experienced this effect each time. It was not severe pain, but definitely there.
