I have been diagnosed with GCA & PMR. I need to sign up in the US for Medicare, the old age insurance. Different plans pay for different drugs. I see my Rheumy 06-30-14, which is too late. I have been told to consider Methotrexate. I will have a plan for a year. Apparently you make a list of potential drugs and then find a plan that causes you to pay the least for such drugs. mickt has named Cyclo and rituximab. Are these prednisone sparing drugs? Do any of you know of others? So far I don't need many drugs other than the ones used for these diseases.
