Well tolerated excep: Despite the fda requiring the package insert to warn one of the development of cancer with the drug, there has been many studies refuting the increased propensity to develop cancer; either lymph, skin or other "solid tumors." the one big risk is infectious complications. The drug does not cause infections; but, it makes it difficult to fight off tuberculosis, fungal infections and viruses.
