Hi
Tonsillar lymph node enlargement is common in younger age without any cause it can take months to subside, however in your case I believe it is due to the combination of Focalin and Taytulla
I recommend asking your psychiatrist to change folcalin
There is know clear interaction except that folcalin can dry the lymph ducts and Taytulla can cause the swelling
Good Luck

Hi..
It can most probably be Infection..
As fever and enlarged nodes is commonly due to Infection
Try taking a short course of antibiotics and fever reducing medicine like Acetaminophen after consulting an Emergency room..

Hope this helps..
