  1. What does hydroxychloroquine combined with methotrexate do for ra


    I've stopped Sulfa as I was experiencing a bad taste & smell, which may be caused by sulfa. After a while it wasn't as effective and I too was prescribed methotrexate alongside. I'm about to start MTX & am hoping that I wont have side effects with that! The side effects of the methotrexate for me were horrendous (chronic chest infections) and I'm now asthmatic as a result.

    MTX+Plaq can be a very effective method of treatment for RA, I guess because the MTX inhibits T-Cell activation and Plaq prevents messengers from telling T-cells to produce TNF - a combination which one imagines is going to be pretty effective - just make sure you have regular blood work with 25mg/w of MTX, it's on the high side, so I hope the side effects aren't too bad for you. Methotrexate is a drug used for rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and inflammatory bowel disease. It is taken on just one day a week. Accidental daily dosing can cause life-threatening toxicity. Hydroxychloroquine is a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug DMARD approved for adults with RA. It is often given in combination with methotrexate and sulfasalazine a treatment known as triple therapy, to help slow RA disease progression for patients who do not get relief from methotrexate therapy alone.

    I had side effects from MTX, which largely wore off, but haven't had any problems with the Hydroxy or Sulpha. I refuse to take it now even if its my passport to biologic treatment. I started with MTX which worked, but not enough so the others were added in which has been better.
