My community is offering free flu shots on Saturday. I am going to be starting Humira early next week. Does anyone know if this is an issue I should address with my dr before going ahead and getting the flu shot right before starting Humira? Also I am on 40mg Pred and 150mg Immuran...
I get the flu shot every year due to taking immunosuppressants for years... maybe Humira will complicate things? Any thoughts?
DX with Crohns in 1998 at age 20
Experienced severe weight loss, anemia, stroke, clotting, seizures, internal bleeding, fissures & an abcess requiring surgery in 1998
Started 75mg Imuran shortly after DX (+ vits) & still on it today(now 150mg), then I was in remission for almost 12 years!
NOW: ....in a flare-up, tapering pred. (at 40mg now) and about
to begin Humira... if approved
