Well 5 months in and still no drug that works for me. Having rechallenged the subcut methotrexate and been prescribed 10mg steroid tablets Ives been taken off both.
Before I was diagnosed my blood pressure and pulse rate were normal. After 5 months of them experimenting with various component of the triple therapy combo from which I have received horrendous side effects my BP is hovering around 170/90 and my resting pulse rate is around 140 needless to say both me and my GP are fed up. I am now off work and whilst the condition goes in without any change the medications have destroyed my life at the moment.
Has anyone else had problems with increases in BP etc. I mentioned it on the RA course I am attending at the moment and someone said their aunt had been rushed in with a heart attack and the first thing they did was stop the methotrexate
