Can it be taken with Nardil, a MAOI??
Can Actemra be taken with Nardil, that is a MAOI?? If not, what can be taken? I am in so much pain everyday, and cannot deal with this much longer. I’m desperate to find something out there. Sincerely, Brenda F. Guillot (Email address can only be seen by myRAteam users)
My flares aren't always exactly the same but yesterday I flared badly. I can describe it to my daughter, sorry guys most women will get this, as the overwhelming body aches and exhaustion on PMS. My entire body feels swollen and it throbs and joints ache like a fever. For my hubby and son I can only describe it as throbbing and aching in my entire body. and exhausted like I've run a marathon and haven't slept for days. And even with all that, it doesn't… read more
Hi, I have been told that I need to go for a bone marrow biopsy due to a consistently low white blood cell count. Has anyone else ever had such a biopsy? I would like some more information regarding the actual procedure.

I have been seeing various rheumatologists for nine years and have had very little need for medicine adjustment. I'm just wondering if a more general doctor might be able to manage my RA or if a rheumatologist is necessary. Anyone else have any experience with this?
Havent seen a rheumatologist yet, but doctor said to ask around and see what medications have worked the best, or which haven't worked at all so I have a little bit of outside information when I do see them! Thanks for the help.
My RA started in my hips and on an MRI I had large effusions and evidence of osteoporosis damage in both hip joints. My rheumatologist started me on only sulfasalazine about 6 months ago. It's since moved to my elbows and knees too but the pain is much improved. I'm worried though that just sulfasalazine isn't enough as I'm still stiff in my hips and I'm not sure if damage is still occurring to the joints... Is it normal to start on one drug? What was… read more
