HELP! I was switched to azathrioprine after I failed on Methotrexate and Arava for side effects. I also take plaquenil with the azathrioprine. I have only been on it for three weeks. I am having a huge flare with intense joint pain in my jaw, SI joint hips and shoulder. I have a balky dry cough when I lay down. I have not felt this horrible since I was diagnosed with Seroneg RA. Laying on an ice pad for my hip and took Aleve. I feel hopeless, even though I am usually a positive person. I would greatly appreciate any advise or encouragement.
