Hi everyone, hope you are all doing ok today. I am not sure what to do - I have had to come off Leflunomide as I lost the feeling in my tongue and the only taste I seemed to have was of salt. Have been off it a month as advised by my consultant and my tongue is back to normal, still have some saltiness though, but they want me to start now with Sulphasalazine but all my joints at the moment seem to be fine so am reluctant to take it. I am also on a clinical trial for an oral biologic and have been for 18 months plus take Hydroxychloroquine and Etorocoxib (Arcoxia) so do I really need one more? I started the Leflunomide in December last year as my hands and wrists were getting bad. Any advice would be very welcome.
