Hi everyone

Another newbie here. I have inflammatory arthritis, which was diagnosed in November 2010. My consultant and I are still working out which is the best medication for me, but at the moment I am taking Sulphasalazine and steriod tablets. I may have to start taking Methotroxate, which prompted my visit to this forum today as I want to hear how others have got on with it.

Looking forward to chatting with you all on here :smile:

    Hi Liz :smile:

    Welcome to the forum. It would be best if you posted any questions you may have on the Living with Arthritis zone, more forum members look in there or the Chitchat zone for non arthritis related "stuff" and there is the cafe there too, which has it regulars. :grin:

    Looking forward to seeing your name around the forum, :smile:

    Look after yourself,

    Elna x

    Hi misslizm, it's nice to meet you. I was diagnosed with an inflammatory arthritis in 2002 (which they eventually decided was psoriatic arthritis in 2006) and am on sulph, meth, humira and oral steroids. I can honestly say that I have had very little trouble with taking the meth (I am on the injected form). It seems a very scary drug (which I guess it is) but side effects are not guaranteed, it can be a very effective treatment if it is given early enough, and it's worth trying. Everyone reacts differently to the meds, I hope you are in the group that has little trouble and much benefit. DD
