Ok...back to Rheumy today. Fluid pulled from knee had a WBC of over 14000...way high. All other lab counts also high. gave me a z-pac for bronchitis and then will be 8 MTX a week and sulfasalazine and folic acid. gave me trazadone to help with the insomnia the prednisone has given me and he wants me to start lessening the dose of prednisone. He says it is aggressive treatment for aggressive RA. He wants to get me on a biologic as soon as he can but because of insurance needs to try the MTX and sulfasalazine combo first. I am willing to give it a go so wish me luck with all the meds. Thanks everyone.
