Anyone had any OB occur after starting RinvoQ (arthritis medication)

Recommended Posts

I have only had one OB in my life HSV2 but I have had some annoying tingling from time to time. Nevertheless I am always hesitant to begin any meds that might bring on future OB. RingoQ says it can cause problems if you have current bacterial or viral infections.   Normally I dont let HSV2 dictate other health measures but I do like to probe the forum just to see if anyone has had any issue or heard of any issue. Thanks in advance if anyone has any input.

I'm seeing the same thing in my research, too, that it "may increase your risk of developing herpes infection, for example shingles or cold sores." 

But of course, I'm no doctor, and since this is such a specific case, could you reach out to your doctor or RinvoQ directly to see what they say? 

It seems to work on your immune system in such a way that can make you more susceptible to develop infections, which I would also assume would increase herpes outbreaks since it's our immune systems that help keep future recurrent outbreaks at bay. I wonder if it’s something you could try to see how it affects you and if the negatives outweigh the positives that you could stop taking it with no drawbacks?
