I HAVE SEVERE RHUMATOID ARTHRITIS.  I TAKE RETUXIN AND I HAVE TAKEN REMICADE.  I WILL BE CHANGING MEDS IN NOV.  TO ACTERNA ONCE A MONTH. I ALSO HAVE A HISTORY OF BLOOD CLOTS SINCE I WAS 26.  I CURRENTLEY TAKE COUMADIN DAILY.  I WAS TAKING ACTONEL FOR MY BONES BUT WAS TAKEN OFF WHEN THE DENTIST SAW A CYSTE IN MY UPPER GUM NEAR MY NOSE.  I ALSO HAVE A WISDOM TOOTH THAT HAS TO COME OUT.  BECAUSE OF MY MEDS I HAD A NTX BLOOD TEST IT CAME BACK AT 65.  THE ORAL SURGEAN WANTS IT TO BE 100. IT HAS BEEN ONE PROBLEM AFTER ANOTHER.  I ALSO TAKE PREDNISONE AND SULFAZINE.  I DON'T TRY TO LET IT PUT ME DOWN BECAUSE I DON'T WANT THE ARTHITIS TO TAKE OVER MY BODY.  I AM NOW RETIRED AND I ENJOY BEING HOME TO REST WHEN NEEDED. I TRAVEL WITH MY HUSBAND AND ENJOY MY GRANDCHILDREN AND MY CHILDREN.  I HAVE A CAT NAMED HAZEL ANN AND SHE IS MY COMPANION HERE AT HOME WHEN MY HUSBAND IS WORKING. I NEED TO LOSE SOME WEIGHT BUT I NEED TO BE OFF THE PREDNISONE.  SO IF I AM RIGHT THIS WILL START HAPPENING IN NOV.  I HOPE!
