For a person that is new to this site the reading is very scary, I do want to know what my future holds and I know we don't have a crystal ball. I have been diagnosed RA factor positive the drugs are scaring me more than RA. At the moment I am on MTX, back down to 10mg due to 15mg reducing my blood count to a dangerous level. I feel very sick on 10mg and it does not seem to be touching my RA which is why they tried to increase it.
When and Why do some of you go onto the other drugs and what is a Rhituximab infusion for?and at what stage would you have this?
I would really appreciate some honest answers around the drugs as I do have a mental block against taking them I have never had to take drugs in may life so I am struggling.
