My Family Doctor was discussing all of the Medications I am taking.
He said some of his RA patients stopped taking Methotrexate when they added a Biologic Medication.
Awhile ago I added Xeljanz to my Methotrexate.
I have been off methotrexate a long time. When i syarted Xeljenz i was still having some inflamation and my doxtor added Arava, which works a lot like methotrexate but with fewer side effects. It has been working great for 2 years now.
I take MTX (8 pills a week) and that's all I take other then CBD Oil. I have been doing this for three years now. No side effects that I know of.
I stopped taking MTX about a year ago and switched to Leflunomide. I think the MTX was causing bad headaches. I’ve tried so many different drugs I can’t remember what the issue was for sure but I know I had a bad reaction to it. I am starting Xeljanz next week but will stay on the Leflunomide as well. I’ve also continued to take Methylprednisolone daily.
