    Combo therapy and covid vaccine, anyone had a serology test confirming immunization?

    I’m on combination therapy of Humira (weekly) + azathioprine (Imuran). I enrolled in the Prevent COVID study and had my 2nd Pfizer vaccine mid April. My first antibody test was at the end of June. I had a 3.4, which was also indicated as “high” (though obviously not as high as others). I’m...

    Immunosupression and Covid Vaccine Response

    It's probably best to send a message to your doc to confirm if they want you to make any adjustments to your meds in terms of vaccine timing. However, my doc didn't think any adjustments were needed to my medicines. I take Humira weekly and daily azathioprine (another thiopurine). Both times I...

    Immunosupression and Covid Vaccine Response

    That’s actually quite reassuring to hear, especially coming from someone else on weekly Humira shots! I was beginning to worry my minor side effects from the first shot was because I took my Humira the day after my first COVID shot. o_O Your Humira/COVID vaccine timing is very similar to mine as...

    Immunosupression and Covid Vaccine Response

    Lucky - I’m also on weekly Humira with daily azathioprine and am curious if your GI recommended making any adjustments to the timing of your meds with your COVID vaccinations. All my doc said was to get it as soon as I could when I talked with her last Fall. I know there is not much research...

    Wow, Lucky! Thanks for sharing your experience! I am on weekly Humira shots w/ azathioprine too and have been wondering about lasik. Like you, I found it difficult to find any helpful info online about people on immunosuppressive meds being eligible for the procedure or not. This is...

    LASIK while on immunomodulators/anti-TNF meds

    Hi all, I was just curious if anyone on here has been on immune-suppressing and/or anti-TNF medications and had LASIK or some other laser eye surgery done to improve your vision.

    Manufacturer's supply on backorder?

    Has anyone tried to refill their azathioprine prescriptions lately and been told there was a delay in receiving it due to a back order with the manufacturer? This just recently happened to me this week and I went into a bit of a panic because I run out of my medication after Monday and I wasn't...

    Anhidrosis?

    Does anyone on here have anhidrosis? I've always had a problem with not sweating, but never thought it was a medical concern. So, I never mentioned it to my doctor. My husband was Googling and found something on anhidrosis, which is basically defined as a lack of sweating. Even when I'm...

    Contact lenses and dry eye

    Hey guys. There has been a lot of talk on here lately about eyes and things. I had a few questions for those who wear contacts and/or have dry eye.

    GREAT news!!

    Well, I finally received my CT scan results today from my GI nurse. She said I only had MILD inflammation with no sign of any fistulas or abscesses! Woohoo! Not exactly the remission I was hoping for, but I will definitely take a mild case of Crohn's over moderate-severe. I forgot to ask about...

    So, my husband and I are going to California the week of our anniversary in October and we'll be leaving the day before my scheduled day to give myself my Humira shot.
