I like a glass of wine of an evening but religiously keep within the 2 units a day allowed. I take prednisolone low dose for many years but am conscious that I need to review my medication and due to see Rheumatologist. Is there any medication with allows alcohol ?

Hi Sally yes there is, any of the anti TNF Meds. But these meds are awfully expensive so you have to be really ill to get them.

remember Brenda, MTX take at leat 2/3months to kick in....take the MTX at night, I found that worked better for me, or i felt kinda sick in the day, and that made day harder to get thru.... so I take MTX and my Enbrel at night weekly....feel tied nxt two days, but I get terrible fatigue due to the Reiters disease i have....I find if i feel sick, nauseas etc, I eat Ginger nuts bicccies....fab ones at Lydls...or toast....does help the sick tumy feeling!
