    I am a 56 yo female newly dx with ra and more have been trying to stay well enough to be on methotrexate for at least a month to see if it works but this my second bout of bronchitis and need antibiotics so have to stop ra tx til its gone. The one big warning for ra drugs is enlarge lymph nodes because they all say lymphoma can be caused by their use. My dr had me see my gyn ay the start of tx and then regular mamograms. Thats the only way to detect a problem is occurring. Please get it checked out soon.

  • Do not take all drugs listed at same time. Am on "pulse therapy" with antimacrobials. Do not take coq10 when on Mepron/malarone. Take Florastor probiotic 2x's a day to fight c.diff & other probiotics. Also take FiberSmart, DigestSmart, & slippery elm, marshmallow root for GI regularity. Drink at least 4 cups green tea daily. CDC confirmed lyme positive in 2010 (September), was bit in May of same year. Had psychiatric & cognitive dysfunction immediately following rash. Further testing show active infection in brain - neuro-lyme dx'd.
