Anyone Try And On Rinvoq And Methotrexate?

Anyone Try And On Rinvoq And Methotrexate?

After the Covid shot I took a downturn due to missing methotrexate. My doctor wants me to try and Add Rinvoq. I take 8 methotrexate 5mg prednisone, and minocycline.

I have an overlap disease of rheumatoid, myositis, and lupus. Hoping Rinvoq will help and I can lower Metho dose. Anything I should be aware of?

I started Rinvoq on 8/5/21 and I think it’s finally helping with the RA pain and a bit with the fatigue. I tried to go off of methotrexate 4 years ago and got extremely sick. My Rheumotologist wants me to continue it because I also have Lupus and Sjogrens.

I’ve been on Rinvoq since July 1st and see no difference. My reason for wanting to try it is bc they advertise helping fatigue which I have a lot of. But Rinvoq has done nothing for me. Dr says keep on it as it takes time. Next dr visit is in November and I’m going to ask to be off this RX unless a quick turnaround of relief.

I’m following, because I’m on an Orencia infusion monthly and 8 methotrexate weekly. My Rheumotologist is wanting to discontinue the Orencia and add Rinvoq. If it helps with fatigue as Jovenze said, that would be great!

Good morning from sunny California. I got the Pfizer booster on Friday afternoon and by Saturday morning I felt like I’d been hit by a truck. Just extreme fatigue and body aches..like a bad flare. This one affected my tummy too. My friend who has MS got hers on Saturday and has all the flu symptoms. I’m a little better today.

One perk for me was that Rinvoq actually helped with fatigue! I hope it helps you-have a good night!
