Can Methotrexate Be Started Again For RA Despite Apical Pleural Thickening?

Male 70 years (5 ft 8 inch) suffering from RA for the last 2.5 years. Was using MTH 10 mg WEEKLY with LEFLONAMIDE AND 5 MG DELTACARTIL daily. I was in remission. Due to apical pleural thickening, I stopped MTH. After two months, I have some pain in hands and knees now. Should I start MTH again.

Hello,

No, cannot be started again. Need alternative treatment options. Visit your rheumatologist.
