Methotrexate during covid times

Hi All,

I know Methotroxate will suppress our immune power. My GI has prescribed me this since my body formed anti bodies to Remicade. My concern is how safe is to take this drug during covid situation. Has anybody had any experiences with covid while on this drug?
 
Hello! My doctor is about to put me on methotrexate as well, but she said it was such a low dose (1 shot a week) that I wouldn't really be at an increased risk -- just keep doing the general common sense things (wash hands, wear a mask, stay 6ft away, etc)
