Very bad cold won't go away

Posted Tue 3 Mar 2020 7.03pm by HPBug

Hi everyone

I'm on immunosuppresent medication (Leflunomide) for my PSA. I got a really nasty cold almost 2 weeks ago and all this time later, I just can't shift it. Has anyone else experienced anything similar whilst on medication for PSA?

I feel horrible and keep worryng there might be something else wrong with me (my own anxieties). Just so fed up of feeling ill on top of everything else and wondered if anyone has experienced the same and how long it took to get over the cold?

Thanks in advance

Hayley 🤧

Thanks for your reply. Will definitely go to the doctors if it doesn't improve.
