would you take Mabthira first before trying any other anti tnf drug if your consultant suggested it might be a good option for you. If so could you say why- and if not, could you explain what your concerns would be.
My consultant has suggested that I go straight onto this drug from failed methotrexate. I have to make up my mind by tuesday when my rheumy nurse will ring me to get my answer. I just want to have the best chance of remissiojn and cant believe he wouldnt have suggested it without good reason. Foolishly I came away not asking and understanding properly why he suggested that one.
Any help appreciated.
