Hello, hope everyone is ok. I'm after some advice please I'm on methetrexate, meloxicam, predisolone and hydroxychloroquine and I know that my immune system is lowered because of them. I've had a cold for a week now and today ive woken with a horrible ear ache and feeling worse. I get ear infections quite easily and usually have anti biotics for them but think i'd have to stop some meds If antibiotics are needed? I've left a message for my nurse but I'm not sure if I should go to the docs or try and ride it out a bit longer? Just wondered what other people's experiences are? Does stopping the meds cause a flare up or not to bad because it's only temporary? Hope that all makes sense!! Thank you in advance good people.
