I also have diabetes controlled type 2. Is there an alternate medication other than methotrexate that I can take. If I agree to try this medication I have to sign a consent form, which worries me.
If you are unhappy, or afraid, with what your doctor is suggesting you need to tell him/her. There are many other options depending on the degree of your RA and how you have responded to treatment so far. Unfortunately many of the treatments are not without risk. Your doctor can help you decide which treatment has the least risk for you. All the best.
