Does anybody know where i can find some general statistics on the effectiveness (or not) of the different drugs on RA patients over the last 20 years or so assuming that they exist. I keep coming across conflicting percentages on the effectiveness of Dmards etc in controlling RA that i would like to see for myself. A Canadian website mentions that over 50% of the drugs are non-effective whereas a Consultant in the UK says that over 75% of patients live 'normal' lives. I understand that everyone has a different response to the different drugs but as a recently diagnosed RA sufferer, i would like to get a better idea of the odds. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
