I have touched on this in a similar post, but I wanted to ask more specifically.
I am in a bad flare right now and have been for most of 2015. I am currently on Entocort 9mg. It has all but stopped working. I know I probably need to be on a biologic, but I have had an allergic reaction to many drugs including Remicade. My body is ultra sensitive to meds.. Anyway, I have also never had ONE vaccination in my life. No childhood vaccines, nothing.. This was just the way I grew up, and I never even really thought about
it when I became an adult. considering biologics suppress your immune system and make you susceptible to illness, so how dangerous would it be for me to get on Humira or Entyvio? I know steroids are immunosuppressants as well, but they are temporary. I have had conflicting opinions from my doctors on this. Im so overwhelmed right now
I should also add, since I am so sensitive to drugs, I don't want to get any vaccines at this point. And where would I even start if I did, considering I have never had a vaccination in my life. Is it too risky for biologics?
