Hi everyone I'm 55 and was diagnosed with RA late last year unfortunately my medication didn't work and now trying new meds. It's got me down but glad to join this forum to see how others are coping on having to change medication. Thankyou

    Hello, I am in my 24th year of auto-immune arthritis (in my case psoriatic) and the 19th year of taking medication to control disease activity. In one way I have been fortunate in that I have needed constant medication since I was 12 so I am used to what they can achieve, what they can't and never think twice about changing them when needed.

    When covid19 was in its infancy here my husband and me both knew I should stay in. I am in my sixth week of 'lock-in' and won't be going out until the beginning of July for my next blood test. I am currently injecting methotrexate weekly and humira monthly, other meds I have tried include tablet meth, leflunomide, cyclosporin and sulphasalazine (DMARDs) and celebrex, diclofenac and naproxen (NSAIDs). What have you tried so far? It can take time to hit on the right med or combination of meds. DD

    Have you got the despatches? No, I always walk like this. Eddie Braben
