I am due to start Anti TNF treatment next week. At my last appointment, the Rheumatologist gave me leaflets on Humira, Enbrel and Rituximab to peruse. I am not clear if this means I have a choice, but if I do, I wonder which is the most popular. As well as the risks, I might take into consideration HaH. Their 'service' sounds appalling. Why can't one pick up the stuff from a pharmacy like all other drugs, I wonder. It looks as if I would have to go to the hospital for Rituximab, but what scares me about that drug is the risk (not quantified) of Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy. Not only do I want to avoid that, I wouldn't want to spell it too often!. Jo
