I'm currently on methotrexate, lefluomide and hydroxy and will be starting on enbrel in a few weeks time. My understanding is that I will have to carry on taking at least one of the above DMARDs - don't know for sure but think lefluomide will be stopped once I start enbrel. I appreciate that I'll need to carry on with some of my current meds as it could take some time for enbrel to get going, hopefully it will do a good job of controlling my RA. If it does, will rheumy then try decreasing my DMARDs with the aim of eventually stopping them altogether?
