(Injection Infusion of Biologics, DMARDs for Rheumatoid problems)
DMARDS – Disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs), such as Methotrexate, are a group of medications commonly used in people with rheumatoid arthritis. Some of these medications are also used in treating other conditions such as ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus.
BIOLOGICS are special types of “magic bullet” targeted medications that slow or stop damaging inflammation. They work by blocking the activity of a key chemical or cell or protein involved in inflammation that gives rise to joint swelling and other symptoms.
INFUSION THERAPY – Arthritis is an alternative for patients for whom traditional oral medications have failed to provide relief. Also a viable option for individuals who have an underlying medical condition that makes swallowing uncomfortable, painful, or impossible.
