Got my first infection since being prescribed cimzia. I have probably had it for about two wks, but its got sufficiently worse now that I am forced to stop the cimzia and had to seek medical attention.
Gp prescribed amoxycillin 500mg yesterday and together with coco's I am managing the worse affects of this cold + sore throat & glands ok (upper respiratory tract infection). I am just tired and sleeping more during the day.
I took mtx on tuesday before I got the antibiotic, as I reasoned I was on a lower dose and I am considering taking them also next wk as I flare very quickly once I am of mtx.
Really worried that the ra symptoms will return now that I am of cimzia - well I am really scared to be honest.
Planning to return to work (as wed & thurs are day off), tomorrow and hope it won't be to horrendous. Will evaluate over the wkend if I need to take time of. Hope I won't though as I am trying to save it for when the ra rares its ugly head, which no doubt it will do at some point!
Take care all
