Has anyone just stopped all medication and lived with the pain. Mtx is making my hair fall out so from this week have stopped it on the consultants advice. A month into sulphasalizine I'm still feeling dizzy when I move. Now I've come out in a rash probably due to being out in the sun with sun protection on because of these drugs. Just feel like the side effects are worse than the pain. Would I be silly to come off all the meds. Pain wise I'm a lot better than I was this time last year. Any advice gratefully received.
