8 Rheumatoid Arthritis Medication Side Effects
Biologic Drugs and Infection
Biologic drugs are the newest addition to RA management. Your doctor may recommend one of these drugs if older DMARDs are not helping. “The biggest worry with biologics is an increased risk of infection," Horowitz says.
Before you begin treatment with biologic drugs, your doctor is likely to test you for tuberculosis and hepatitis because biologics weaken your immune system and could reactivate those infections. And if you have another active infection, your doctor may want to wait until you recover. Once you begin using biologics, wash your hands frequently, avoid people who are sick, and tell your doctor if you develop a cough, fever or symptoms of a cold.
