Taking 2.5 MG( 35 mg)1x weekly.
Have deep pain now between my shoulder blades, no relief.
What is next Drug we should try.
Next Dr appt 1/13.
I agree. There’s other drugs that can be added to go with the methotrexate to make it all work better. Just talk to your doctor.
only your Dr can answer this question none of us can tell you whats next but if you call you rheumatologist he/she could possibly order you something else to work with the meds you are on and help you
How long have you been taking it? It can actually take a while to work. It took like 4-5 months before i saw a difference and worked great but gave me suicidal thoughts so i had to come off of it

I could not tolerate methotrexate and tried and failed several other meds before participating in a trial for Xeljanz. I am starting my 2nd year of remission on XeljanzXR. Now, having said that, sometimes your insurance will require that you try less expensive meds first and fail them before they will pay for more expensive ones. Your Rheumatologist will know what is required. Also, keep in mind that we all react differently to RA meds, what works for one may not work for another. Sending healing prayers that you find your working med soon.
