Sulphalazine reaction

I was started on the above medication but with in two weeks started having side effects including sore throat, high temperature, raised glands followed by an intensely itch rash all over. I was adviced to stop it and recommence on half the dose in three weeks. I am really nervous about restarting it. Has anyone else had this problem ? Would be grateful for some advice.

I am on sulfasalazine too I have been OK with it but there is a lot on people on this sit that have had a reaction to it. It's a good job it has not effected me because it is the only thing they can give me because o have COPD as well I would speak to your rheumy clinic and see what they say
