Any information about Treatment with Rituximab, Tocillizumab or Etanercept?
I live in London and am not responding to treatment using methotrexate (25mg) a week or Hydroxcholroquine sulphate (200mg) daily. I continue to experience flares with the last and worst one in April lasting 10 days. I had a steroid shot which helped but won't last long and I can feel start of another flare.
I have been offered biologic - Benepali or STRAP trial and randomised treatment with one of three biologics- Rituximab (infusion) Tocillizumab or Etanercept (both injections). I have agreed to trial as I feel I have to take a chance and that it may work for me but also scared. I know the risks but know the health professionals will support me. Any information and advice very welcome. Thanks
