I went to the docs this week as I'm STILL flaring! I've been increasing my mtx: 10 (3-4 months) 15 (2 weeks) 17.5 (2 weeks) -20mg this week. I'm now on 5 days of folic acid also. I've been on Naproxen then diclofenic then Ibruprofen- little to no effect. Steroid injections have never helped; steroid tablets have but obviously can't have too many courses 😒So....back to the docs after a conversation with a very helpful NRAS lady 🙄and I'm now on Celecoxib (with omeprazole first thing.)
I'm to take 100mg twice a day-keeping to the same times, if no better in a week increase it to 200mg twice a day😞3 days into it and no improvement yet. It worried me reading the possible side effects.
The doc even suggested taking omeprazole with mtx- not heard of that before?
Has anyone had any dealings with Celecoxib and Mtx?
