I'm seeing my rheumatologist on Tuesday. My RA is not under control and I know I need to add another DMARD (I'm on 20mg injected MTX) even though I suffer badly with side effects. Last time, I was sent away to have a little think and research. I had 100% decided on leflunomide but the more I read, the more I worry. Azathioprine was also suggested and now I'm wondering if this would be better as I see it's used for Lupus and I'm showing some symptoms. My rheumy is refusing to re-test Lupus antibodies but that's a story for another day! Anyway, has anyone been on azathioprine in addition to MTX. I'm not sure if it can be used in combination. I def don't want to come off the methotrexate as it has helped somewhat.
Thanks for reading!
