Are Most Folks On A Biologic And An Anti-inflammatory Like Celebrex, Meloxicam Or Ibuprofen?

I will hopefully start Humira soon. I have a medrol dose pack but am not sure that a single joint flare justifies it. How do you know? I was feeling pretty good but my thumb just blew up......So strange!

I'm taking methotrexate & folic acid . My dr said if blood work still shows progression she wants to add enbrel shot 1x week to the methotrexate. So, we'll see. Keep us posted on your experience with humira.

Hi Terri. Oh wow! How scary. I have been reading about how the biologics work. I wondered how vulnerable one is with the the immunosuppressive effect. Which biologic are you on? Do you also take methotrexate? I just took my first dose of Humira yesterday. Take care of yourself! Hope you feel better.

I was at my rheumatologist office Tuesday getting antibodies. I had the Covid vaccine, then I got Covid and double Covid pneumonia. When I took my infusion a couple of weeks ago it depleted all of my antibodies, so now we are trying to get those built back up

I had a shot of Depomedrol 100 mg but it's effect was limited. Not as miraculous as I expected. ๐Ÿ™
