    Hi. I'm currently on Tocilizumab which is really suiting me. Was started on Adalimumab but that didn't help. I was on Methotrexate for about 15 years prior to going on a biologic but had to stop due to nausea and liver problems. Think biological are marvellous 😀

    I think I've read that you have to try Methotrexate and one other medication before you can be prescribed a biologic. Is this correct?
