Leflunomide update

Hello - I asked a question last week about the upset tummy side effect of Leflunomide and mentioned putting it off until after Christmas....

Well - today I saw my lovely new Rheumy and she said that the funny tummy was very common when they used to prescribe a loading dose of 100mg to start with - they don't do that any more and I'm only going to be on 10mg a day so I'd be very unlucky if I did'm going to give it a go!

Thanks to everyone who offered their advise - much appreciated. :o)
