Just thought I'd update! Saw my GI today - and I went against what I said earlier & decided to start on the methotrexate!
Basically he told me that he had a meeting with other GIs from Belgium & places, who publish a lot of papers etc, and was talking to them about
me! He wanted to get their opinions & see what they would do. They suggested putting on methotrexate along with the Humira to prevent antibody formation & prolong the time I get with it. He told me that it would be tablet form & a very small dose of it, only 7.5 mg - so I won't be getting it's therapeutic effects, it will just stop antibodies forming. I'm only on 2.5 mg now, and he said we'd very slowly increase it over a couple of months, once the bloods are ok.
What basically changed my mind was him saying "if Humira stops working, we have only a couple more options to try, so let's try keep it working for as long as possible".
So a complete turnaround from my frame of mind this morning, and now I'm on another drug! Let's hope the no side effects continue!!
