I take arava and methatrexate for RA and muscle disease. I’ve been on these medications and then some for one year. My blood tests have been coming back okay since yesterday now my blood tests came back with extremely high numbers on my liver. My doctor took me off methatrexate and i go back in three weeks for more blood work. What will happen now if my numbers don’t lower is there other medications i could take that will help me like the methatrexate and arava does?
Yes. Your doctor may consider one of the new TNF drugs (Enbrel, Remicade, Humira). See the info on this website.
