Does anybody take both methotrexate AND azapriothine? My consultant wants me to start aza next week, building to 100mg after two weeks but not going to 150mg because I am to continue with the methotrexate at 20mg per week, which I have been taking for over 5 years.
When the aza has kicked in, about 12 weeks, I am to commence reduction of the steroids but, given my previous reactions, I am never to let the preds go below 5mg.
I've been on combination therapy before - methotrexate and leflunomide. The result was emergency admission to hospital. It was a great shame because for the two weeks before it nearly killed me this combo had me feeling better than I had in years.
