When you come down with the common cold do you usually skip your weekly injections or do you continue taking your medicine?

I went with my gut but also contacted my doctor. It was hard to tell if I was having allergy symptoms (which are pretty bad this year) or a mix of a cold- so I skipped my methotrexate injection. Luckily I didn't feel bad in my joints!

I always have asked my doctor. I think it's sometimes a go-with-your-gut thing unless your rheum or pharmacist say otherwise. But always consult a HCP.

I would always take my shot. I thought I had the flu one year and called my doctor. He said that if I wasn't running a fever that I would be OK to take my injection.
