Arava

Arava

Hi Dr. Just put me on Arava. 1 pill a day. 20mg. Any side effects? Does it work for any of you?

@A MyLupusTeam Member. Arava has really helped me. I have been on low dose prednisone for years and now I am tapering off of it because the Arava is helping so much.

Give it about a week to notice improvement. I think this med is a mild one.

How long does it take before Avara starts to provide relief? I am also on Methotrexate because I also have RA.
