I have had a couple of colds while on enbrel(taken for ankylosing spondylitis) and have always stopped taking while sick. Usually no big deal at all.
Well I got sick about a month ago and skipped a dose then got better. I then forgot to take it my next scheduled week(first time ever in a year lol) and then I got sick from my wife the next week. I am now getting over that.
To make a long story even longer am now on 3 weeks plus without enbrel and I am starting to hurt again.
I am also taking antibiotics but I am feeling much better and just have some congestion.
Getting over colds and flus has never been a problem although I do get sick usually 1 to 3 times a year.
Should I take my dose of enbrel. Am I worried about nothing? Probably.
Any thoughts on this matter would be much appreciated.
