I started taking Arava two weeks ago after intolerance issues with both sulphalazine and methotrexate. All was well until today when I have suffered a few bouts of almost passing out - no pre warning signs just hit out of the blue. I am now left this evening with a headache and generally feel out of sorts. I have read the side effects sheet that comes with the meds and dizziness and light headiness is listed.
This is where my question comes in if anyone is able to help- has anyone suffered similar symptoms? Were you able to continue with med or was it stopped in your case? Any advise on how much of this symptom should be tolerated before Seeking doctors advise. I don't want to be seen going straight back to doctor when I have already tried two DMARDS and not tolerated them!!!
Any views would be appreciated.
