Humira has been officially denied. Gotta try and fail more old-school DMARDs before they(Florida Blue ) are willing to pay for it. Which leads to the most likely next options : methotrexate(most likely ) sulfasalazine (less likely ), plaquenil (less likely and not used a lot due to messing with vision.
I’m not surprised, but whatever… those are the breaks. Methotrexate plus my other med Arava is supposed to be a kickass combination. It’s just that it’s a chemotherapy drug and pretty much wipes you out the next day but oh freaking well heh heh heh.
I’m just going to have to have a dedicated day off each week to recover from the Trex. That is if my Doctor uses it. I have no idea what his plan is. It just irks me that the Humira got denied because I was feeling some relief after two injections. But still, I kind of won because I got a Scot free month of a super expensive medication.
So, moving on ah s’pose. I had my meds adjusted recently and am feeling better for it. Bit more of the Wellbutrin and recommendations to follow up with my Psychologist. Alrighty then.
In my twenties my big problem was Mania and impulsive behavior and all that stereotypical bipolar stuff. I’ve been on a maintenance dose of Risperdal for a few years now and it appears to be holding. Except for… depression. That still burns pretty hard. It’s better since I started the Wellbutrin but still somewhat troubling.
Tonight I’m just kicking back before my work week begins. I leave you now to resume this.
