Technically, you can be on Humira while taking other medications, however it is counter productive to take an antibiotic while your immune system is being suppressed because antibiotics work in conjunction with your immune system. What Humira support will tell you is that if you have any active infection you should definately wait before starting Humira, as per perscribing rules, but to make sure always ask an expert. For further informaiton seek the Humira hotline at 1-800-4-humira or visit the website http://www.myhumira.com/NurseSupport/Default.aspx.
