I have an appointment with my rheumatologist next Tuesday and need some advise before I go in. First let me say that I have always followed the experts advise until now. But, the last recommended medication change resulted in what we believe to be remicade induced lupus. Previously I was being treated for RA. I've had RA since age 8 or so albeit a mild case most of my life. In recent years it became more debilitating hence the remicade. I am being treated with methotraxate and prednisone presently. The last three months or so it has stopped being as effective so we began tapering off on the prednisone last saturday. I am going to have to replace the current treatment with something else and am here to see what you guys recommend and what works for you. I have done quite a bit of research but still don't have any concrete idea of how well these drugs actually work from anyone who might be taking them. I would appreciate any help you might have to offer.
Thank you for any feedback you can give.
