When first diagnosed was put on Methotrexate which I took with great results from September 2014 to January this year, I had developed a cough so they stopped the mtx and after a big flare up in March (I wasnt on any drugs for RA) they put me on leflunomide, which I have been on since. It doesnt seem to be controlling my RA at all as I have flare ups most days somewhere or other. Four weeks ago I was put on hydroxyquine(? sp) but it disagreed massively with me, giving terrible runs, even up during the night. Today I saw Rheum nurse who said I was right to stop the Hydroxy thingy but need to find something that helps the RA better than Lef.
Has anyone had probs with mtx stopped it then gone back on it? Did the symptoms reoccur? I cant take the sulphasine as I am also on digoxin.
Desperate to find something to relieve the symptoms and give me at least some days without pain. I also cant take naproxen because of rivaroxoban I take
Thanks for any help
