Hi everyone, I hope you´re managing OK. I´m just after a bit of advice really. I´ve been taking 10 mg per week of MTX for a couple of years now, it seems to be working OK except for a flare I had a few weeks ago, but thankfully I´m feeling much better again now. It´s a big year for me, I´ll be 60 in a couple of weeks (yikes)! and it´s also our Ruby Wedding anniversary. I probably sound like a bit of al alcy here, but I wondered if anyone has ever requested they come off MTX and replace it with another drug, to be honest I want to be able to have a few drinks especially as we´re going on an all inclusive cruise!! I do enjoy a glass of wine now and again and the occasional bacardi and coke, and feel bereft at being teetotal for the last couple of years. (not completely true actually, I´ve had a sneaky drink now and again, but it showed up on my last blood test) so that put the kybosh on that !! Has anyone else come off of MTX for this reason and if so what do you take now and has it been successful? My next specialist appointment is in June, so it would be great to go and see him fully informed of any alternative drugs. Thank you for your help. Take care. xx
