Ok well im pretty sure I have mono. The doc thought i had strep, but the antibiotics haven't worked at all. and as for the swine flu, I think my symptoms have lasted much too long for that. Anyways, i will go and get tested for mono but ya. Has anyone had any experience with remicade/methotrexate or other immunosuppressants and mono? they say mono (glandular fever), is a latent infection, and can come back when your body is stressed and down. So even if i recover from this, im scared of going back on the meds, any thoughts?

I got mono when I was on high steroid dosages years back. I never got it again, and I've since moved on to imuran and humira. However, I have no idea the risk when you are on remicade. Maybe talk to your prescribing doc?

Sorry, wish I could add more!
