First time post-long time reader. I hope I post this correctly.
Question: has anyone stopped Rinvoq and then restarted at a future date? I want to get off the medication to become pregnant. I don’t have many medications left to try and might need to get back on Rinvoq and pray it still works the same as it is now (putting me in remission). Thank you.
For more details:
I’m on Rinvoq 30mg for maintenance of my mild/severe pan colitis. I have been through a lot of meds and don’t have many options left (Stelara is pretty much my last option and my doc doesn’t want me to get my hopes up about
Stelara since I’ve been on stronger stuff and failed).
I’m considering pregnancy but I would need to be off Rinvoq as it is not considered safe.
My doctor suggested that if I wanted to we could switch me to Stelara as I can get pregnant on that medicine. If Stelara fails I can hopefully go back to Rinvoq without a problem and it still would work.
Has anyone had experience with restarting Rinvoq with success/no success?
My journey has been wild like many of you on here. I thank you all for sharing your stories and helping me in the past (and I’m sure the future) through tough times so I didn’t feel alone or helpless.
