Mtx/Ssz/Hydroxy is the well tested triple therapy that many people have great success with.....let’s hope you are one of them.
Do try to remember .....most people are very successful on most of the drugs we take .....but people don’t post to say how wonderful their drugs are... only how awful they can be .
So take your triple therapy and fingers crossed you can write and tell us how well you are doing.
You are lucky to be moved on to this therapy in 8 months..... Because of the shortage of rheumatologist a lot of people don’t even see their consultant for a year after they have been diagnosed.
I do remember how scary things are soon after diagnosis...but comeSummer things should be looking up for you.
Hi, I’ve been on triple therapy for about ten years and it was an absolute life line for me when it started to work. I know it can be daunting taking more medication and I definitely felt that way, but it has worked. Is there anything in particular relating to the medication that is worrying you? If so, you could discuss this with your Rheumatology team, or maybe even a pharmacist. I’ve done the latter a few times, to give me peace of mind. I really hope it works for you too and you get some relief from the flare you are experiencing.
