Hi folks, well it's been 2 years since the RoActemra MTX taper trial started but now the inflammation markers are rising again necessitating 6 monthly preds. So I've had advice that Rituximab is the way to go. I didn't like the look of it and after much consultation we agreed the 2nd best option was Simponi for which I've now had TB/HepB tests and wait result. Don't know much about this self injectable med but just have to hope it works if tests are negative.
