Hi - I wonder if anyone can think of a reason why my rheumy and GP only offer me Sulpha as an alternative or a combi drug to the MTX I'm taking? I took it for a while last year and hated it and had a bad reaction to it - so why would they ask me to consider taking it again and never offer me other DMARDs? I'm sure Plaquenil/ Hydroxy is less toxic than Sulpha - so is it about the expense perhaps or other side effects that they anticipate for me? I wonder if it has anything to do with my eyesight as I wear glasses and the optician said that Plaquenil is the only drug that would warrant for me to have more frequent NHS eye tests? Does anyone know anything that I might not be considering or do some rheumys just not offer all of the DMARDs to their patients to research and choose from?
