  1. 0
    So I've always been curious about this. I work in the hospital in the float pool and sometimes I get floated to the oncology floor. I take cimzia a biologic Ned that suppresses your immune system and maybe thinking of switching back to remicaide or 6mp I know 6mp is classified as an oral chemo and remicaide is also classified as a chemo drug I don't know about cimzia but being on these drugs is it still safe for me to care for a patient on nutrapenic precautions? The nurses I asked didn't really know and I'm more worried about the patients safety for having an imminosupressed care giver taking care of them

    This is something you need to discuss with your prescribing provider. They will be able to best counsel you as to how to approach your work while taking medications such as those described in your post.
