How long did it take to get biologics
I have been struggling with a massive flare over the past 15 months since having a baby and they have tried sulfasalazine and methotrexate and after a recent MRI and seeing that the disease is still very active they have decided it’s time for biological medication. I’m delighted as it might be I’ll finally get some relief but my next appointment isn’t for another 8 weeks then o was warned it could take up to 12 weeks to actually get the meds as they have bloods do and send to England (I live in NI) and funding to apply for as they cost so much and it’s devastated me thinking I can be in this much pain for another possible 5 months! I don’t deserve it and neither do my young children as I’m snapping at them more and more cus I’m that irritable and sore :(
for those of u on the biologics, did it take u that long to finally get the meds once u were told that was the next course of action?
