Medication Question

Medication Question

I want to know if Methotrexate is helping any of you. Does it relieve your inflammation to ease your pain? Just on Methotrexate alone, not with another Med.
Thank you so much.

I have been on methotrexate for about a year. I also take plaquenil and sulfasalazine. I started taken Hadlima a month and a half ago. To be honest, i felt no improvement at all until I started the… read more

Anyone Know About Xeljanz Vs Humira?

Anyone Know About Xeljanz Vs Humira?

Good Afternoon everyone! I'm hoping to get some advice from you. I am currently taking Xeljanz ($3300/mth) but am getting help from company for it until the end of the year. Anyhow, at the end of May i had a flare up so my dr gave me a prednisone pack and I felt great. Again I am having another flare up and another dose pack. Dr ran new tests I've never heard of before and they called this morning and said I have 2 choices.....stay on Xeljanz and take Rasuvo injections (weekly) along with it. (Mread more

Rasuvo

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/ Otrexup Auto Inject

Rasuvo/ Otrexup Auto Inject

I was taking methotrexate pills for 2 months which made me sick for days at a time. Dr. switched me to Rasuvo. BCBSOK denied it without trying an injectable first. The thought of injecting myself with a needle causes me anxiety. I picked it up, got it home and could not do it. As of today I've gone 2.5 weeks without it, and the pain is ridiculous. Anybody else had this issue with BCBS and were you ever able to get it approved, and how?

A myRAteam Member said:

Got BCBS to cover the Otrexup injectable. Very easy and virtually painless to use. It's been working great until a flare up started yesterday. Not sure what triggered it, but today is hell.

Hi, Has Anyone Had To Deal With Tennis/golfers Elbow With RA? I Have Both Of Them In Both My Elbows.

Hi, Has Anyone Had To Deal With Tennis/golfers Elbow With RA? I Have Both Of Them In Both My Elbows.

It’s worsened with any pulling or lifting. My Dr suggested steroid injections in both of them. I suspect it’s from my RA not being well controlled with the Xeljanz I’m taking. It’s been worsening since I was taken off my Actemra infusions a year ago. I also have tendinitis in both of my feet and one of my Achilles’ tendons. Thanks.

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. Any… read more

Rasuvo is methotrexate. It's possible that there might be diferent fillers in than in the ones you took before. Not all generics are equal to the original medication.
