Hi Karloff,
I am taking Methotrexate 7.5 a week, folic acid, oxycodone and a duragesic pain patch. I just read on the web site about Antibiotic IV Therapy and when I go back in 3 weeks to my rhumatologist I am going to ask him about trying it. I find out tomorrow the results of my echocardiogram, we are afraid I have heart valve damage from my last flair up. I just had a case of Iritis so bad (3rd time) it took 2 weeks to get over 5 trips to the opthamalogist and pred forte drops in my eyes for 2 weeks. Oh I also take 20mg of prednisone almost every day. Let me know if you have other questions. Lisa
