I thought i was on the right track.
After having a really bad lupus-like reaction from remicade, I sought a 2nd doctors opinion who i really liked. I started on 6mp 25mg for 2 weeks then 50mg for 2 weeks and began having a "hypersensitivity reaction" My doctor took me off it and i felt much better. He has sttarted me again on 25mg to try and work up again slowly...the goal is 100mg.
He said that if this doesnt work, my only options left are methotrexate or surgery....or of course continuing to flare and take prednisone multiple times per year (which he says i have been on for way too long)
I guess i got my hopes up and now I feel like im running out of options...anyone every had a hypersensitivity reaction and theh work through it?
Thanks and Happy New Year!
