jhicks, I would do whatever it takes for you to get better. Do not be scared of the side effects of biologics, it is statistically unlikely that you will have an issue. But if you do it is really easy to feel it. It makes you feel so much worse. I have been told that I probably had "latent" lupus and just never knew it. After I was taken off of biologics the lupus got better, but did not completely go away. I think people who are over the age of 25 seem to have more of an issue with the lupus issue.
