I recently read an article (online) that stated that there's an antibiotic (minocycline) that has shown success in treating rheumatoid arthritis. Has anyone heard of this....if so I'd appreciate thoughts regarding this treatment. I'm currently on methotrexate (8 2.5mg pills once/week) that was raised to this dosage. Then labs were ordered...my rheumatologist is talking about changing me over to something else, ie. humera or embrel.
