hi all,
 
Just wondering what to do here.  I have a cold that is going around congestion and all I know in the past when I had a UTI my GI said it was ok to use so wondering what to do.  Any suggestions?

Any of the biologics have risks associated with making infections worse. Also, one of the main side effects is an increase in respiratory problems. When I was taking Remicade and then Humira, whenever I got a cold and it was time for an infusion or injection, I had to go to the doctor's office and get checked out. A couple times my injections were delayed a week while I was on antibiotics. Another time, it was felt that it was okay to do my infusion in spite of my drippy nose, watery eyes, and dry cough.

Best to check with your physician.

Yes that was what I was worried about and I do my injections weekly as opposed to biweekly.
