I'm always open for a new drug! Maybe it will be something that helps me to get off all of the other one's I am on. That's what I am trying to do now, is talk my Rheumy into taking me off some of my meds. I have gained way too much weight, but he says each one is working on a purpose right now.
Never regret something that made you smile!
