Hello everybody I haven't been on here for a little while. In November I started Methotrexate, but unfortunately it made me really poorly and I had to stop it. I have been on a low dose of steroid 5mg per day since then which has suppressed the RA symptoms. Now in March my Rheumatologist wants me to gradually come off it and then see him to see what the next step is. He has suggested a drug called Lefalamide, but he thinks I may not be great with this one because of my reaction to other drugs. I have tried sulphalazine, Hydroxichloraquine, and now the Methotrexate. He says that there is a percentage of people who don't react well to side effects from drugs which makes it more difficult to prescribe treatment. So I'm hoping that I don't fall into that category. Has anyone else had bad reactions to drugs and did they find a drug that was alright for you? Sorry about my bad spelling of the drugs.Thank you
