Precautions to keep in mind
It is important that your doctor check your progress at regular visits to make sure that this medicine is working properly and to check for unwanted effects.
Your body's ability to fight infection may be reduced while you are being treated with abatacept. It is very important that you call your doctor at the first signs of any infection (e.g., if you get a fever or chills).
While you are being treated with abatacept, do not have any immunizations (vaccinations) without your doctor's approval. Live virus vaccinations should not be given for 3 months before or while receiving abatacept.
