It’s 3:03am and I’m concerned because my rheumatologist wants to add another drug to the methotrexate and plaquenil to make it a triple therapy, in hopes of reducing the pain, inflammation and damage of RA.
But I just got the prescription for arava and it says not to get pregnant for 2 years after finishing the medicine, and if you want to you have to ‘flush it out’. What? How serious is this medication then?
I don’t know if I ever want children and certainly don’t have any plans in the next couple of years, so why am I awake at this hour worrying about the effects of a drug I haven’t even taken yet?
At least I can ask my doctor when I go and see him this morning…
