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

I just started Arava and have noticed a large decrease in appetite. Has anyone else experienced this and did it get better as it got in your system?

What should I expect? Any worse than Methotrexate?
Has anyone had a sacroiliac joint injection? If so, did you have any mood side effects like depression? Two days afterwards I have found myself in a deep dark hole. I can literally feel my sad mouth. No expression in my eyes, face. I feel very very bland, blah. Hungry but no appetite.
I am not sure if it is just the injection or perhaps there is an interactions with Arava or just perhaps the Arava.
