In need of venting my frustration I started anti tnf embrel 9 weeks ago, things seemed to be going well till 4th injection a slight reaction by 6th body couldn't tolerate it, (I'm lucky that my RA team will fit you in quickly.) It was agreed I stop and would find something to suit me. However would need to allow 2 weeks for it to get out my system, Before they could introduce another drug, not sure how I managed the 2 week, back to clinic yesterday with yet another plan of attack, this time to increase MTX to 30mgs. Pharmacy at hospital don't keep that dosage, would have to order i which would take. 10 days they contacted RA unit who said need to take it ASAP so issued with 2 x 15mg injections (joy) till they arrive.
RA diagnosed 25 years ago luckily it went into remission till 3 years ago. Over 3 years Ive tried so many combinations of drugs without success. I try to keep positive and active, although at moment I'm neither.
