Went to my GI appointment yesterday. Not only did he recommend that I start the Humira yesterday, he also wants me to start 100mg of Imuran as well. After reading all the info I could find on Imuran (the stuff on this forum about
all the nausea was *very* interesting
), I'm concerned about
taking these two things together. It seems like I go from one upper respiratory infection to the next during the cold months. Right now I'm on my fourth sinus infection since September. Combining two medicines, both of which lower the immune systems ability to fight infection, has me concerned. I really should have asked my GI about
it, but there were so many things I needed to talk to him about
, I forgot this one very important question. The fact that I'm exposed to 1,500+ people (from all over the world) every day I'm at work adds a bit to my concern.
I'm sure there's a bunch of people on this board that are taking both an immunomodulator and a biologic. How have you been doing as far as URI's are concerned since you've been taking both meds? More? less? same?
