Rasuvo

Has anyone found themselves to be iron deficient or vitamin d deficient while on Rasuvo?

A myRAteam Member said:

Not on that med but yes iron and D deficiencies to the edge point of anemia. It comes with the territory I’m afraid. Another RA fact of life.

Rasuvo and stomach issues

Rasuvo and stomach issues

I am taking rasuvo and I'm experiencing stomach cramps and discomfort, nausea etc. Is this a normal side effect? I've been on it before and don't recall feeling this bad but I had been on methotrexate pills and switched to the Injectable. This time I've been completely off rasuvo/methotrexate for 4 months while trying to fight a bad sinus infection. I just started the rasuvo back last week and have been nauseated enough to throw up. The stomach cramps are pretty uncomfortable as well.… read more

Small graze on foot now large and infected

Small graze on foot now large and infected

My rheumatologist office told me the infected foot has nothing to do with my ra or being on rasuvo and xelijanz. Everything I have read says infected cuts are most definitely a side effect of ra and immunocompromising meds. Has this happened to anyone else?

Has anyone else experience intense exhaustion with 300mg of Cosentyx?

I have been on Cosentyx for 6 months, originally on 150mg and the past three weeks I have been doing a new starter dose of 300mg for 5 weeks. Has anyone experience extreme exhaustion? I really cannot get over this fatigue. I am also on rasuvo shots. Any help would be great.

Methotrexate dosing?

Methotrexate dosing?

Hi! I was just wondering if anyone knew what the normal or average dose of methotrexate was for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. I understand it varies based off of how aggressive it is, but I'm just wondering if I should expect my Rheumy to bump up my once weekly 20mg dosage of Rasuvo (injectable methotrexate) at my next appointment. Just curious is all, thank you in advance!

A myRAteam Member said:

I'm on 25mg injections, and I think that's as high as is allowed for RA.

Enbrel

Enbrel

I've been on plaquenil and Rasuvo- the injectable form of methotrexate for 4 years. I'm having lots of pain and discomfort from my joints, mainly my wrists, shoulders and hips. I'm having an MRI this month to see if there are bony changes and then we'll make a decision after that. Does anyone have feedback on this drug good or bad? I'm weighing the options and trying to make an educated decision:) Thanks!!
