I had a bad reaction to sulpalazine and was advised to stop it,have a 3 week break then try again. I took 1 tablet and within 6 hours the intense itchy/hot rash had returned. I again stopped it and contacted my rheumatologist to inform him. He said he would get my next appointment brought forward. This brought forward appointment is on 11th February. It will be 2 1/2 months without any treatment from my first appointment. It is also with another Doctor, that I don't understand! Is this long wait between appointments and swapping of Doctors normal for rheumatology? This is starting to get me down now. This has been ongoing for a long time. Is it wrong just to want to feel better !!!!!
