So... What do you do when the only meds* you respond to are anti-metabolites and you are toxic to both methotrexate and leflunomide?
*I haven't tried all the biologics yet, but have failed off 2 of the TNFs, and Orencia was only marginally beneficial -- maybe a 5-10% reduction.
I'm feeling pretty low today. I have to start taking the leflunoimide antidote today and have been told to stop taking the drug. It is so hard to comply with this order... Since I had to stop taking methotrexate, leflunomide is really the only thing that gave me a semblance of normality -- ok, I had no endurance to speak off anymore, but I could do things again... I really don't want to go back to the studying the Slug Form of living.
