I was told aspirin is dangerous to take with this drug so am looking for a drug that will be safe.
This really should be discussed with your rheumatologist as aspirin, Nsaids will react differently with each patient. I take 20 mgs of meth and during the day, take aspirins as needed. I also take Humira injections twice a month and have my blood checked every three months. The aspirins and the meth do not negatively effect me, and I never take them together. It might be different for you which is why you should go over all the details with your doctor and let him prescribe pain meds for you.
Good luck and I hope all works out well for you.
