Thank you so much for

    Polly Thank you both, I thought it shouldn't be too bad and that it's pretty mild in comparison to other drugs. Always better to be well informed and I remember the consultant saying its bit a bad time of year to start on it as I've missed all the bugs round Christmas time so thought there may be a slim chance of it being suppressed. But do look after yourself, and make sure you eat well and don't get too tired as if you have a cold already you need to pamper yourself a bit more than you would have before RA.

Mar 22, 2013 It alters your immune system, but as far as I know, it doesn't actually suppress it. Plus, if you have only been on it a month, it's probably not built up enough in your body to have much of an effect.
