Hi missm

I thnk I know what it's like as I tried loads of drugs and cocktails before I got ARava and Humira which seems to be working a good bit, but I lost my job and was told if I improve they would have me Back, but it has been so frustrating ! However the benefit is not having to go to work in the cold and when I am sore.

ARava has been good to me but my blood pressure is going up which can be a side effect so seeing doc again Thursday.

I hope the leflunomide (ARava) is kind to you too and starts to make you feel better, it sounds like its being a long journey for you.

Love Axx


thank you , i am i will be skipping soon , wishing: :), will like you no if my rheumy gives me the go ahead, allanah.x



Im on leflunomide (arava) and after having few problems with dosage i havnt had any bad side affects. Have just upped my dose yesterday so hopefully i'll still be ok.
