I have been on sulfasalazine for about 6 weeks. I am not finding it ti help too much and my hand keeps swelling up and I cant bend my fingers. I feel nauseated and just not well. I have lost my taste buds and cant eat much because everything tastes so awful, Has this happened to anybody else. I am slowly cutting down on this medication. I dont know if I should get right off of it or not. I am on 3 pills twice a day, If anybody can relate could you please give me some suggestions. And anything on why I cant taste anything would be so appreciated.
