I have become caffeine and aspartame free given my diagnosis. I do drink decaf green tea. I try to avoid anything that may add to inflammation.

I recommend the flu shot to almost all my patients, especially those that take medication for RA such as MTX.

Whoa! There better not be! I need that caffeine to get me through the day! I'm a High School Teacher and a mother to a 16 month old little girl. I take MTX (and many others).

Best of Luck! Crystal
