Hi Boo,

I stopped mtx for exactly the same reason. I've never been needle phobic but it just made me feel awful. Sick and my mouth would salivate. As for the other I can't comment but whatever you decide all you can do is try. What works for one may not work on another but you have to feel comfortable with it and that the side effects have to be better than a flare up or its not working.

Take care and keep in touch.



Thanks louise09 I will appreciate your advice


Hi Boo25,

If you want to find some more information about the new medications your Consultant is recommending (Leflunomide and Enbrel), you can find them on our website here:

Alternatively, I would suggest speaking to the rheumatology nurse at your local hospital - you should have been given a number you can call if you're concerned about your medication. There is also the NRAS Helpline on 0800 298 7650.

Kind regards

Emma - NRAS


Thanks Emma for your advice I will call the helpline
