Hi Everyone -
I have been on 100 mg of Imuran for about
6 months now and have had pretty good results. Since I have been on it, I have been extremely cautious about
taking steps to avoid getting sick (washing hands, avoiding people who are sick etc..)
Here is my current situation - I have been asked to travel for work next week which would involve taking a flight to another state. I am extremely fearful to fly while on this medication since my immune system is compromised. Of course, adding to my hesitation is that the travel is a week before Christmas and the last thing I want to be is sick over the holiday!
Do any of you have experience with flying/traveling while on Imuran? Did you get sick? Am I being too cautious?
Any comments would be extremely helpful. Thanks for reading
