Now she takes colchimedio 0.5 one pill a day and Daivonex cream every night, as well as Methotrexate two pills every eight days on Sundays.
Physically she is a healthy girl. My concern has always been taking the drugs for an unlimited amount of time, what side effects it can have. She gets checked periodically, and up to now everything is okay, thank God.
Thank you for this web site and I would like to be in touch with you, and to know more about eating habits, exercise and in general the normal life my little girl can lead.
