Re: discussion on Paddison Program

Clint, I saw your comments to several people and I have some questions. I was diagnosed with RA 23 years ago. I was on Enbrel for 14 years till I started developing infections, including pneumonia. Just this year I have tried Orencia and Actemra. Neither worked for me. Next the Dr. is recommending Rutuxin which is an intravenous medicine taken every 6 months. I am very nervous about this medicine. I have investigated many diet options but am already a vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free. I'm not sure what to do next. Just very tired of being in pain. Suggestions?

Just wanted to suggest that if you have worries about the possible use of Rituxan that you might want to give the NRAS helpline a call 0800 298 7650 to discuss your concerns or perhaps to be put in touch with someone who is currently or has been on this medicine.

Best wishes
