Discuss: You need to be informed of the risk/benefits of starting the new treatment and be informed about how it is expected to help you. The biologics may cause immunosuppression and increase risk of infection. Since there are now many of them, there are relative risks.

If you fail methotrexate, tnf agaents such as Enbrel (etanercept) or Humira would be the next step. These agents almost always work beautifully. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
