jas, I understand how upsetting it is to lose what you think is your best option. I've had it happen a few times. Every other time, I ended up finding something else comparable (although I never knew that to begin with...I remember crying the first time I had a reaction to Remicade and they poured what was left of my IV bag down the sink). This last time, I lost mtx, and we haven't found anything else that works as well. I still miss it. Talk to your doctor about
your concerns. Maybe he already has something else in mind that he just hasn't informed you about
(like Humira or Cimzia), or maybe there is some reason he is viewing the rash as more serious than you think it is and the tests show it is.
Crohn's Disease, Acid Reflux/Gastritis, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Endometriosis, Arthritis, Depression/Anxiety. Too many meds to list them all. =)
