That is on thing that my husband and I are afraid of when this is suggested for him. I have a fear that he will get some sort of infection that is not treatable or get the flu and not be able to recover. It is extremely rare for hime to have colds, flu, viruses etc now, but he has had Shingles, and iritis quite badly.
I have been on Infliximab and Humira (not together) for the last 2 years. I have had far less infections than ever before. I Have fistulizing crohns disease and was suffering with constsant infections until I started these drugs. My life has been tranformed from being bedridden for much of the time to actualy feeling quite human with a bit of energy. They have'nt been without a few problems due to me reacting, but still worth it.
I hope this helps.
