I started taking Leflunomide Christmas time, and it worked so well it was like a miracle. Unfortunately I then started to get diarrhoea. I halved the dosage of my own back, but I still have stayed well, RA wise. Sadly the stomach problems have continued and worsened. I am on 2 weekly blood tests, and went for my results as part of my diabetic review. She said my liver function test came back as abnormal, which could be due to alcohol or medication. As I don`t drink it is obviously meds. I did have my diabetes under perfect control, but now it is out of control. I feel this isn`t a coincidence.
I had another test last week, and rang today for the results. I was told they are all normal, no action (I have been told this before inaccurately) She then said, oh the Dr has left a not to control your alcohol intake and have a return test in a month. I am furious! I know my tea total ways are on my notes, and I am certain the fact I have two weekly blood tests are. As they provide my medication you would think they would realise I have such frequent tests for adverse reactions.
Luckily I have my RA clinic next week. I just needed a good old vent.
