Good morning all.
After 2 years of taking MTX, Sulfasalazine and Hydroxychloroquine in combination my new Rheumy has determined that there aren't having enough effect as a combination and wants to take me off the Sulfa and substitute Leflunomide.
Although I'm pleased something is being done I am a bit worried about the side effects of Leflunomide - having the runs doesn't suit my busy lifestyle as a working Mum - my RA nurse told me I needed to make sure I carried around spare bottom half clothes for the first few weeks, eeek!
I am thinking of postponing the start of the Leflunomide until after Christmas (have so much planned already!) so that if I do get the unpleasant side effects then it won't interfere with my festive plans - any advice from anyone on this combo or who has taken Leflunomide would be very much appreciated.
