I'm on 20mg injected MTX and 10mg leflunomide - been on this 18 months. I had cimzia added in August but the injections were stopped a few weeks ago due to side effects. The plan is to try another anti TNF but I finish my degree at the end of May and I don't want to go on another anti TNF before then in case it makes me poorly again.
I was wondering if my leflunomide dose could be increased but not sure of the doses for RA? I want to be armed with a plan when I see rheum on 26th March. I know MTX can be increased but lef gives no side effects compared to a few side effects from MTX.
