I would like to know if some of you have given up your immunosuppressive treatment because of catching "everything that goes around" and being on antibiotics all the time. I admit that I don't know what to do, choosing between plague and cholera is complicated... Is it normal that an immunosuppressive makes us so fragile?
Thank you in advance
Hi @karm!nR ,
thank you for starting this discussion. Hopefully some of the members here can share their experiences with immunosuppressive drugs.
I'll tag some of them here, in case they have missed this thread 😉

What is your experience with immunosuppressive drugs? Which one(s) have you been taking? How effective do you find it/them? What about the side effects?
Thank you all!

I've just tried to take the smallest dose possible that can help with my RA. I'm taking methotrexate and Rinvoq. So far, even with several kids in school, I've only been sick a couple of times. I do take lots of vitamins. A multi vitamin, zinc, vitamin D, and folic acid. Maybe that helps also.
