  • Hi billyPam

    It's a tough ride,Isn't it?! I take 28 tablets a day , 20mg Mtx a week ( another 8) and weekly enbrel injections. Like you, I would sworn they did little more than ever take the edge of things until picking up chest / lung infection a few weeks ago. As a result , I had to stop the biologic and Mtx. Within one week, I knew I was wrong and they really do help.

    I think I'd say they're not yet doing what they need too, it they certainly do something !

    Wishing you all the best going forward.

  • Just think how bad you would be without the drugs,you don't say how long you have been on these meds,if it is only a short time you will need to give them time as they can take up to three months to get into your system. If you have been on them a while then you should consider seeing your drs who are looking after you and tell them and they will look at your regimen and see if it can be tweaked a bit.xxxx

  • Hi Sylvi the majority of tabs about 13 years some a bit longer and some only about 4 years. Have seen doc a few times and asked them to review but they say because I dont have fits any more the tabs must be working

  • So don't take it upon yourself to stop taking them darling whatever you do. I am sure no i know you don't want any more fits now do you. You might have to speak to the consultant who takes care of you. On a Wednesday in the morning i shovel 23 tablets down my throat,8 of them being mtx.xxxx

  • Oh no I wouldnt stop without them saying its safe to do so

  • Hi I take 11 tablets a day plus 20 Mgs mtx injections and 50mgs Benepali a week , have been on the tablets and mtx 3 years and Benepali for8months , but I think I would be a lot worse without them as I couldn't get out off bed at start off RA journey and doing a lot better now pain wise but still get bother with hands and fatigue
