Its been a while since I've been on but wondered if anyone has any info on which one to add to methotrexate???
Diagnosed sero-neg RA in April this year after 3 months of multiple joint pain, stiiffness & sweeling since Jan. Been on Metho for 12 weeks with only marginal improvement. Currently also reducing prednisolone (very slowly due to withdrawal side effects - not pleasant!!!) Was on 20mg dose for 16 weeks now down to 9mg. Back in pain, swelling and stiiffness again, fatigue unbelievable (sleeping 10hrs plus some days)
Seeing Rheumy Nurse tomorrow about starting combination therapy - Metho plus either sulfa or hydrox???
Bit concerned about hydrox as already developed probs with eye sight from pred and metho???
But wondering if Metho and Sulfa will do the job???
I was given the impression that the Metho would work after 12 weeks but not the case 😕 Any info on best combination would be much appreciated 👍
