My partner has rheumatoid arthritis long term since childhood... he has been on leflunomide (arava) for almost 2 years after trying every biological and other medications this is the best one get has tried it's totally transformed him which is great... we have 2 children already but want to have another in the near future... he went to gp the other day to discuss Cholestyramine for wash out of leflunomide but she just brushed it off saying no he would have to stop taking the arava and let it flush out by itself which will take 1-2 years 😣 obviously we weren't happy with that as such a long time to be off working Meds and when we have done our homewOrkney on Cholestyramine. My question is who can actually prescribe him with this would his rheumatologists be the best option? His next appointment with them is in a couple of months just wondering how best to approach them on it...
Thanks in advance x
