I started 6mp just over 3 weeks ago and am having my first remicade treatment tomorrow.  However, today i am scheduled for botox (on my forehead).  Does anyone know if botox is a problem while on all this immunosupressive stuff?  I hope not, i dont do much for myself these days and i look forward to the botox "pick me up"!

That's a question I really think you need to ask your doctors.

I have had botox before and the only issue I've had is temporary puffy eyes. Once the botox settles, I'm fine. However, I'm not taking the same drugs as you!

Very good question! I am 38 and every time I see the commercials, I want to get it!  I keep forgetting to ask my doctor.  If anyone finds out, please let us know.  The same goes for Tatoos? Are they ok as well?

Well i did it! Told the doctor doing the botox about the meds. He was s little concerned of bleeding and bruising due to the 6mp but nothing a little extra time with the ice pack couldnt take care of!
