Ok so here's the embarrassing post..
I Started Humira 2 weeks ago, had loading dose of 4 jabs and just took another 2 jabs on Monday. This is on top of the Azathioprine 200mg that's I still take.
Today I have a hsv-2 outbreak after a long time without any due to daily suppressive Valtrex, going on 3 years now, since starting the Azathioprine. This was to avoid outbreaks while on Imuran.
The last time I had an outbreak was actually just over a month or so which happened after I had my 3rd Covid vaccine and docs said it could happen.
I'm worried that this is gonna happen now Im on Humira and it looks like the biologic is actually working because Im not seeing any blood now for just over 2 weeks.
What concerns me also is that I am already on daily Valtrex so they shouldn't really happen (500mg). I take 1g daily when outbreaks happen like now.
Has anybody experienced this?
