Hello,

I have studied your case with diligence.

I can help you better if you post x ray reports and blood reports to me.

You can take dose of methotrexate.
I will advise dose 7.5mg weekly.
You can start combination consulting your treating doctor

NSAIDs, DMARDs (disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs) are sometimes prescribed in severe cases.
Newer biologics have role in RA.

There is good role of diet and achieve correction through it, for details you can directly contact on my profile

Dear Patient,
I feel its important for you to know that the weight of the patient is beyond the permissible limit what is required is that she should control weight so that the effective dosing to control her conditions be reduced and this will lead to less side effects.
Thanks
