Re: embrel vs methotrexate
I have juvenile chronic polyarthritis, Enbrel worked wonders for me for about two years and then unfortunately it stopped working. I had to move on to another immunosuppressant.
I've been on MTX, shots and pills, on and off for years but it just doesn't seem to do anything for me. My docs keep trying to put me back on it and I tell them, look this isn't doing anything for me! Docs can be pretty hardheaded when they have a favorite drug they like to rx.
Careful with the high dose Motrin. How's your stomach? At least with shots you get to bypass the tummy.
