Hey I have had 2 doeses of Humira...   I got a cold like a week ago and it is not letting up at all!!!  
When I was on Immuran it messed up my immune system..   Could the Humira be doing the same thing?

Hi Curly, Humira like Remicade is an immune suppressant which lowers your inmune system. Thats why hits its hard to get ride of colds. I would call your doctor and see if the doctor can prescribe something for you.

IMHO, your family Doctor as the GI doesn't usually deal with family medicine.  Your family Dr. will know your on this med correct?

Hope your feeling better soon.
