Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping warm and feeling somewhat ok. I saw my rheum you nurse yesterday and as my RA is not under control she said that I need to go on triple meds as this usually works with most people. I am already taking 20mg MTX, hydroq, folic acid 3 days a weekand now she has given me Sulfa to take with the usual increase over 4 weeks. Can anyone tell me if there are any serious side effects with taking these 3 dmards ?. Previously she asked me to try to give to stop smoking, after smoking for almost 60 yrs and reaching 40 a day, I have finally managed it and have been smoke free for 7 weeks now. Last week at the GP' S I mentioned it and the only response was " ok but I don't want to hear that you are using the e cig " I left feeling very upset as I had tried very hard and expected some support. Over the years I have tried everything the NHS has thrown at me with no success and the e cig is the only thing that has worked for me. I am so sorry for such a long post but I needed a bit of a rant. Have a good day everyone and thank you for reading. Xxx DD.
