Discussions that mention trexall

Arthritis board


I was diagnosed with RA a year ago. I first started with methotrexate injections which helped for a short time. My rheumatologist then prescribed Humira 40mg and then Humira w/trexall. Worked for a while, but joints, fatigue and cold weather really take a toll on me. He is now recommending Remecade. I'm a little nervous about taking this medicine. Not crazy about infusions. I just want to get rid of the fatigue. It seemed like my fatigue got worse with the combination of Humira and trexall. I asked about enbrel but he feels it is the same as Humira and strongly suggests Remecade. I need some direction. I really don't know what other choices there are, if any. Please help...
