My wife thinks that it would be a good idea to stop Enbrel injections right now because of the Coronavirus to limit the risks of me getting sick.
I wanted to know what you all think about this and if your doctor or rheumatologist have told you to do the same?

@mark48 I'm no expert, but I'd say that you should probably talk to you doctor before doing anything. It's probably not a good thing to stop cold turkey, your body may not react well to that.

The CDC advises against stopping any treatment. They request that if you are worried to contact your prescribing physician.
