I saw my consultant a few weeks ago in clinic and he thinks that Cyclosporine or Methotrexate (Cyclosporine was the one actually suggested in clinic) might be the next thing to try, at the time I expressed that I did not feel comfortable with the idea of immunosuppresants and he has since wrote to my GP stating that he feels there isn't much else to try. I explained to my GP why I feel uncomfortable with the idea of these drugs, I am just basically asking what are the risks and side effects of immunosuppresants and if you feel they are worth it for the improvement in asthma? I have come away today in particular feeling quite fed up but if the risk of immunosuppresants is worth it I would consider them. Oh and I have a high IgE (over 5000) if that helps.
Any replies appreciated.
