Methotrexate and Humera vs. Antibiotic

I am on Methotrexate (5 pills) 2.5 mg and Humera injection every two weeks; however, I got flu and am really sick with high fever and sore throat with runny nose and severe headache. I am confused how to use antibiotic while I am on these medication; I have never got any instruction by my RA. Any advice and directions of using it? Really appreciate your help

Hi

I was informed not to take my biologic with any sign of fever,cold symptoms and antibiotics. I would either speak with your rheumatology unit or GP to gain their advice.

Hope you better soon

Hi sorry you're not feeling well, I've just had a really horrid virus and ended up on antibiotics, I take methotrexate by injection and they gave me one that didn't interfere with it so I was able to continue with the injections may be worth going to your gp hope you get some help and feel better soon
