I have been on Arava for almost 2 months - doing very well. I am to try to come off of my 5mg prednisone. Last week I started taking it every other day and it seemed ok. However, last night (Sun) I woke up with terrible pain - in some joints but mostly in my teeth. It felt like all of my teeth were throbbing all at once. It was terrible. I tried alieve but did not help. I resorted to my Pred pill and that calmed it down. How am I going to come off of this drug. Any ideas and success stories would be greatly appreciated.
