... mg/2 x a day for the last two years for my rheumatoid arthritis. I started experiencing extreme night sweats and running a low grade fever and was referred to an infectious disease doctor. He ran two gold TB tests both of which came back as inconclusive and was told I have latent tb.
I have been taking a total of 600mg/day for a couple of years and have had negative tb tests. I'm not sure that it effects your immune system in quite that way. I believe that other meds have more of a true immunosuppressive effect such as methotrexate, etc... (But I'm not a doctor.) Take care.
