I've had a cold for nearly 4 weeks and carried on taking my weekly Humira. I was not showing any signs of serious infection, just had a stuffed-up and alternately runny nose despite using over the counter remedies.

Only his doctor can make the decision.I've been taking Humira 4 months and had a minor cold with no problems. Since the injections are every other week, I doubt it would make much difference it you skipped an injection. After all, if you came down with a cold right after an injection it would be two weeks before you had an opportunity to skip one. I'm curious what your doctor says. My plan is to keep taking it if it's just a cold.

Hi Nayner, Welcome to healingwell. My rule of thumb with the tnf-inhibitors and illness is that, for me, it is fine to take it with a simple cold. If I have a fever, however, no. If I end up taking antibiotics, no. Just a cough and a stuffy nose (which is certainly miserable), I go ahead. I learned early on though, that if I call my rheumy's office, they're going to say no if you have a little sniffle (liability reasons).

Humira is great for my R.A. but I am getting huge cold sores on my mouth every month. I think the Humira lowers the resistance to any virus infection. Has anyone else had this inconveniant side... I think the Humira lowers the resistance to any virus infection.

That’s why doctors monitor people carefully for serious infections while they are taking HUMIRA and why your specialist and general practitioner (GP) may encourage you to get treatment early for any infection, even a minor one, like a cold or a graze, so they don’t become serious infections. It is important to tell your doctor if you get symptoms of infections such as fever, feeling tired, persistent cough, wounds, skin sores, dental problems or burning on urination.

Medication are not subject to the liquid limitation so I am assuming that flying w/ them in a cooler (even if it included cold packs) would be ok, with a doctors order. I haven't done it but like others said the airport/airline should help. Also you can check out the TSA website that has answers to frequenly asked questions.

You should not use Humira if you are allergic to adalimumab. Before you start using this medicine , tell your doctor if you have signs of infection--fever, chills, sweats, muscle aches, tiredness, cough, bloody mucus, skin sores, diarrhea, burning when you urinate, or feeling constantly tired.

If you are taking medications to treat depression, anxiety, or another mental health condition, they can interact with many other types of medicine—even those that you can get over-the-counter, like cold, cough, and flu remedies. Certain ingredients in cold medicine can change how antidepressants work, including making them less effective.
