I've been very, very lucky so far & have not had a single cold or 'flu since diagnosis. Until now. Throat was gritty most of the night, it's getting & worse & a cough is starting. My husband's had exactly the same thing & GP diagnosed a chest infection & gave him antibiotics.
What I'd like advice on please is should I see my GP straight away? And is it always necessary to stop Mtx whilst on antibiotics? I'm trying to decide whether I should take myself & my germs to the GP this evening as my husband needs the car tomorrow & we are not on a bus route worthy of the name so I won't be able to get to the doctor then.
(I'm on Sulfasalazine and Mtx).
