Hi fellow sufferers of RA been diagnosed now 2 1/2 years & have been given Methotrexate by my Rheumy up till now. Over the last 2 months have he'd a bad time with a Lung infection after a CT scan a fibrous growth was found on the Lung wall now after seeing my Rheumy last Friday he stopped my Methotrexate with immediate effect & has now put me on Sulfasalazine. My question is I had no side effects with Methotrexate has anyone had any bad side effects from Sulfasalazine. I'm flying off to Malta on Sunday & really do not want to start a new tablet with the chance of problems on Holiday. So taking plenty of Co-Codamol & continue the new tablet in 7 days time. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
