Many different immunosuppressive drugs are used in respiratory medicine. Each has their place and their particular, often dangerous, side effects. This means that a clear understanding of how they are used and monitored is required. This chapter covers the four most commonly used: corticosteroids, azathioprine, methotrexate, and cyclophosphamide.
