What medication did you receive just before starting the infusion and what did you receive a week before starting?
The drug my doctor put me on before starting Krystexxa was Colcrys (colchinine). Before the therapy was infused, I took a pill of Allegra and then the nurse gave me some Tylenol and hydrocortisone. I was told to be prepared for gout flares as a side effect, but that would be a sign that the drug is doing it's job. I didn't have any reactions during the infusion though.
