How soon can I return to school / study after the drug treatment has started?

Your doctor will decide when you can go home from the hospital. You will continue to take medicines at home. Before you go home, it is agreed where you go to take your medicines daily. In addition, you will regularly visit the outpatient clinic in the hospital, where your treatment and its effect on your health is monitored. This changes your normal daily schedule and requires adaptation and can make you tired.

It is good to rest at the start of treatment. When you get better you will little by little feel less tired. You can continue your school and study as soon as you are able to eat and be active. This also usually improves your mood and helps your recovery. Once you get home from the hospital, you will no longer infect or endanger your friends.
