Has anyone being on leflunomide 10 mg ? I’m on it now and wondering what should I expect , how soon it starts working and etc . With my constant flare ups and dizziness and nauseous all the time and losing my appetite my rheumatologist thinks that hydrochlorquine isn’t working well and upgraded me to different stronger drug. I could use any advice and help from my team warriors. Greatly appreciated

I was on it for only about 8 weeks as it made my stomach very upset and as a paraeducator at the time I could not function or be there for students when I was wrapped around the toilet constantly. Wishing you all the best!💜🙏

Remember every med affects each of us differently. I was on leflunomide for quite a while. I had an anti nausea prescription in case I needed it. Good luck 🍀
