Vasculitis – Medication Side Effects

December 3, 2021


Most treatment options for vasculitis are considered to be reasonably safe, but they require long-term close monitoring for any potential side effects. Most of the medications used to treat vasculitis are immune suppressing medications, which could increase your risk of infection. It is very important to adequately vaccinate to reduce your risk of such infection. The corticosteroids used to treat the disease has multiple side effects. Ask your rheumatologist on how to decrease those risks. Make sure you visit the rheumatologist to closely monitor for the disease activity, as well as the medication related side effects. A regular follow-up and blood testing could help reduce these long-term problems.
