Adalimumab and Charcot marie tooth

Options

I have rheumatoid arthritis and Charcot Marie Tooth Type 1a disease, is there any evidence why I wouldn't be able to take Adalimumab (Idacio)?

Thanks

    Welcome to the forum, @jegerton87 . I see that you have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Charcot-Marie-Tooth, type 1a. You seek advice on any reaction there may be if you take Adalimumab.

    Whilst there are no such reactions listed on the Versus Arthritis or Muscular Dystrophy websites this is a question that can best be answered by the Consultants handling your treatment.

    Best of luck.

    I confess I've never heard of CMT so I had a quick google. Adalimumab doesn't seem to be on these lists of meds to be avoided. https://www.cmtausa.org/living-with-cmt/managing-cmt/medications/

    Personally, I'd ask my local pharmacist and/or CMT consultant. Good luck with it.
