Sorry having a arghhh moment 😬. Came back from Mr Rheumy - he said not happy with markers ESR 21, CRP 29. So he has given more meds this is my worst nightmare, but got to do what I have to do right? So herewith my list:
Increased Mtx from 15 to 20mg. He tried to reassure me and say in the US they go to 30 but not in the UK.
Increased folic acid daily except day of mtx
Added Hydroxychloroauine 200mg daily
And to help get rid of the inflammation in feet - remember I said cannot walk - he said I must take the Prednisolone: 4 per day for one week, 3 per day for one week, 2 per day for one week then 1 per day for one week then stop!
Anyone else feel flat after having to take all these meds. Swallowing those tablets today was so hard, had to force myself to say do it....
Oh and he said do it google or read forums as I guess the stories may encourage me to throw them all down the loo 🚽 Need my forums 😊
Was so encouraged about this food way of controlling RA, now thinking of why deprive myself as 3 months and still the same after eating so well!
Anyhow hope you all are coping and being positive, as we must. Blessing to you all, stay strong. I shall keep you posted.
I should add to this, he said I I definitely would need the injections, but cannot put me through until he takes me through this stage ! Has to be after 6 months, he said June now.
Anyone else on the increase of meds? Let me know how you coped, could do with reassurance on this prescribed cocktail. - as always big hug 🤗
