MTX has a problem with antibiotics, the former reduces your immune system to possibly treat RA.



Antibiotics will not treat a cold because that is viral, they treat a bacterial infection. Removing gut bacteria where the majority of the immune system is held at the same time as using MTX which reduces the immune system leaves the body vulnerable to infection.

Between a rock and a hard place with this treatment hope you find a balance that works soon.
