Hey, I'm seeing my Rheumatologist first thing in the morning!
I am trying out Methotrexate which is primarily used to treat Crohns and Arthritis. I have Spondyloarthritis, and it is definitely working well for that.
However prior to this, when I was taking Pentasa, and then Azathioprine, I had problems when I increased the dosage, severe allergic problems, and so of course, I am worried about
increasing my dose of Methotrexate from 10mg to 15mg, and yet I am concerned that when I come off the daily 10mg of Prednisone I might start bleeding again and so I am thinking that I should really go up to 15mg...it's a dilemma.
Here is my question....
Is it likely that 10mg could be enough to support my UC? or do you think that's a bit too low and that I should bite the bullet and just up it to 15mg.
I don't believe my UC is as severe as many other peoples, but that could change of course!!
Or should I stick with the 10mg and if I have problems then up it to 15mg.
Your thoughts are appreciated.
