Does anyone have a problem with ear infections and taking Humria? I am on my second er infection in the passed few months.
I'm on Enbrel and did get a lot of uti infections at first a friend on the same as you has had uti and chest infections
Are you on a high dose of MTX or other DMARD as well as the Humira? I was on MTX along with Enbrel and had to keep coming off them as a consequence of infection.
Dropping the dose of MTX worked brilliantly for me - no further infections. The combined drugs seemed to have overwhelmed my immune system making me more susceptible to infection. Perhaps this is something you could discuss with your Rheumatologist? Just a thought. Jude
I would echo, discuss with your rheumy.
With immuno-suppressive drugs it's a bit of a balancing act between too much - too many infections, and too little - too little effect on the RD.
