Hi I am new and have just been diagnosed and suffering with with reactive arthritis, I was practically disabled, consultant has said I now have rheumatoid arthritis. Am just getting better taking prednisolone naproxen and also hydroxchloroquine as well as co codamol before bed. All seems to be working but has taken 4 weeks. Luckily went private but have appointment with nhs mid January as much insurance wont pay for chronic conditions. My concern is coming off the mediation and getting all the pains back. Consultant is considering methrate next. I have not had any side effects from taking all the tablets.
