Hi guys, I have a dilemma. I am newly diagnosed with RA and have loads of questions still about this condition.
I am on Methotrexate 25mg injectable but my symptoms are only partly controlled. I need another medication to help me out. They proposed Hydroxichloroquine but I cannot tolerate it. Or it's just in my mind, I am nauseous most of the time, excessively tired, stiff and have blurred vision right after I take it which goes away after 1-2 hours of administration. Are this normal at the beginning until the body gets used to it or what? I honestly stopped it yesterday and have to decide whether I go for something else or try to continue with it 🙄
The other options are azathioprine sulfasalazine or leflunomide. Rheumatology Department won't decide for me, they gave me the options and let me decide. I don't know what to do? Which will be, from your experience, the best Please help 🙏
