It has been my experience that I always took an NSAID (non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug) such as ibuprophen, mobic, daypro, etc. in addition to mtx and plaquenil. Over time, the nsaids would become less effective and I would switch. Those seemed to be directly related to the amount of inflammation. I would ask the nurse if it would be ok to start with something like that, even an over the counter form (advil, motrin, etc.). 10 weeks is a long time not to get relief!
Actually I have been taking Celebrex for a few months now along with Tynol so I just don't know what to do.
Thanks for your quick response
Hope you have a good day.
