I feel quite silly being nervous, but this doctor is somewhat cold and appears not to want to be bothered with questions. I have so many questions about my most recent labs back in July. I've had three appointments with labs each time since March when I was first diagnosed. Since being on Sulphasalzine 500 mg 2x daily, it seems like my labs have gotten worse and RA disease activity has increased into the high activity range. My liver panel labs have been high, so I'm afraid of what he may decide to do with my meds. I've had an awful time of it this week. Increased joint pain, blah, blah, blah.
I am taking hubby with me to meet my doctor so hopefully that might help my doc explain somethings better.
Quick question too while I'm thinking about it. Have any of you taking Sulphasalazine had any difficulty with being able to urinate? I have, but it's been inconsistent. Sometimes I sit down to go and I have to wait for several minutes or have a really slow, weak stream. If it was happening all the time I would have called the doctor's office. I will bring it up tomorrow, though. Just curious about any similar side effects anyone has had with this drug.
On a positive note, we found a little dog today and were able to track down his owner. woof woof.
Blessings to all for a restful and comfortable night. (Or morning, or whatever time zone you may be in.
