Had my first visit to the biologics clinic and I do not qualify for biologics because I am not on MTX and didn't stay on it for 3 months before I stopped taking it, same with arava and now same with imuran. So my choices are go back on mtx and hope I don't kill someone due to the manic rage I experienced on it or end up with such bad neuropathy that I just won't cope. I have to up the dose of imuran as I haven't been on the required dose to qualify for biologics and stay on it for three months regardless of side effects to qualify. The problem is my liver levels have already risen a lot in the last month and if they go up much more I will have to stop taking it and then start on some other medication and start all over again and then wait another three months. This is just a ridiculously stupid requirement I cannot believe it. To say that I am upset is an absolute utter understatement. I just feel like chucking it all in and walking away at this point because it feel like I will never ever get there with the way my body reacts.
