Folks who take a certain medication could be at risk for a deadly infection.
We're talking about rheumatoid arthritis patients who take TNF blockers like Cimzia, Enbrel, Humira or Remicade.
The FDA says those drugs could put you at risk for "histoplasmosis"--- a fungal infection that starts as a respiratory infection.
Tell you doctor if you're experiencing symptoms like fever, chills, swelling, night sweats, joint or back pain.
