Hi can anyone tell me why after Being on MTX with not much benefit I was given Arava / Leflunomide but the chemist couldn't give me a repeat from my gp surgery this morning and said only the hospital can prescribe this drug , was only given a months and next rheumy appointment is end march can't get reply from my consultants secretary . Why can't gp prescribe this drug would of thought mtx would of been the same . Is it dangerous or something . Also only given 3 blood test forms for every 2 weeks for 6 weeks . Any info would be appreciated Thanks Teresa x
