I've just came back from seeing my GP for some pain killer for RA untill I see my GI for Humira, or to let her know Remicade has stop working. He suggested that since Humira is my last option, I should try taking Methotrexate with remicade. Has anyone does this? and advice! I've done some research, and it seems pretty scary. I don't wants kids just yet as I'm only getting married in April, but one day I will. MTX seems I may have problems later, what do you guys think?
Thanks so much xoxox

Do take methotrexate but not with Remicade.

I have a cousin who is a doctor who also has Crohn's. He takes methotrexate mainly for his RA. Said he couldn't function without it. He had a resection for his Crohn's many years ago and only has the occasional problem with that.

Being young and wanting a family some day is of course another consideration for you.

Good luck in finding something that works for you.
