When I was taking Remicade and then Humira, I was not allowed a shot or infusion if I had a cold until someone checked out my lungs to make sure there was no congestion suggesting a possible pneumonia or bacterial bronchitis. The anti-TNFs are notorious for giving patients upper respiratory problems on their own. Is there someone you can call at the prescribing physician's office to run your situation past? They should know your history and be better able to advise you.
