I haven't been on here for a while, I was wondering if anyone is taking sulfasalazine on its own? I am starting these tonight, also do they help?
I have been on methotrexate for 9 weeks and had my routine appointment on Monday. I mentioned that I have developed an annoying cough since being on this, so have been advised to stop them for a while. It's such a shame because I was dreading started them due to other peoples side effects. But I got on with them quite well apart from the cough and a little extra tired.
So for the time being I'm just to take sulfasalazine and my usual pain relief, hope I get on as well with these. Although it was just 9 weeks on methotrexate and it usually takes 12 weeks to work best, It didn't reduce any of the pain in my left collar bone, shoulder, elbow & arm. Some days I can hardly use my arm as it's so weak and painful. I've had a shot it steriod too but nothing so far is making it better. ( it's been like it since sept )
Has anyone else's joints got better from taking sulfasalazine alone??
