Plz don't think like this . Drugs for rheumatoid arthritis need regular follow up as they have so many complications.  And initially dose need to be adjusted depending on response

Sometimes u need to see the patient at shirt intervals to titrate the dose or change medicines. Once she stabilises on treatment then probably you may need to visit at longer intervals. If u have doubts please discuss with your treating physician.
