Sit down while you read this....
My Remicade co-pay would be $700, which means the infusion is $7000! My co-pay for Humira and Enbrel is around $250-$300! So those are $2500-$3000! Why do they have to make it so difficult to get help that is needed.
We tried sulfasalazine and I got huge sores in my mouth, on my tougue and down into my throat. So, I'm allergic to the drug that would help best for my type of arthritis. So now I'm going to try methotrexate again. It didn't work well the last time I was on it but I'm running out of choices!
Thanks for letting me vent! AAARRRGGGG!!!!
