here the short of it. I'm 57, diagnosed almost one year ago. On methotrexate, hydroxychloroquine, folic acid, calcium, prednisone (tried to taper but cannt get below 15mg a day) and have been on Embril since July, 5 months. Still out of control;; couple good weeks, then slammed. Also taking sulindac (NSAIDs). I feel like I'm always on the border of a flair, and with the help of a sinus infection, I was wiped out for 6 days. Now the ra dr thinks I should keep with Embril for 4 more weeks and the jump ship to an infusion.
Not exited about this being hooked up to a bag thing and trying out another biologic.
Im thinking I need a support group or something. I'm getting very discouraged. Any words of wisdom on this would help. Thanks
