@Michelle, luckily in the UK, I now qualify for a free flu jab and for a vaccination for coughs and chest infections due to taking Trymfya so I'm due to go to the GP to get those administered. In terms of keeping the immune system topped up, I've been lucky enough that it is fairly robust anyway but have caught colds more easily over the last year but no more frequently than normal - which tends to be once a year. It does depend on how active I've been and how run down I might be but, touch wood, I've been healthy so far. I drink natural juices - beets, celery, etc mixed with apple and/or orange and a dash of cider vinegar on a weekly basis.
So far, I'm still on the medication road so I have to take the injections every 2 months so I've not been in the position to take note of how my skin reacts if I stop using it. I've varied the time I've taken the injection by about a week or so later as I have the injection delivered to my parents who set up strict reminders for me to make sure I don't forget but so far so good.
So, in short, yes it does weaken the immune system. You should be provided with some decent support if you're recommended to go this way in order to support that weakening. You also don't have to do so many regular bloodtests - once a month or so is the norm now. In fact, my next blood test will be in March next year when I go back to the consultant for the next follow up. The effect on the skin is, to me, nothing short of miraculous. To go from vividly redmarked and flaky skin to 90% clear (just the brown mottling on the skin is left) but smooth skin within the first couple of injections, theoretically, should be enough to convince you that you should consider trying it. It doesn't reduce your immune system to the same extent as the multi-purpose tablets did but I do understand your concerns as it was one of my main concerns as well.
