I have been recently put on Arava, I cannot take Lyrica or gabapentin they both give me really strange side effects. I was wondering if anyone has had much success with Arava and what your side effects are to this drug!!
My husband and I have decided we want to start a family. I have an appointment with my rheumatologist tomorrow. What are questions we should be asking? We will be first-time parents. All I have ever been told is that I need to be on birth control and We need to plan the pregnancies. Any information will be useful and much appreciated.
My rheumatologist wants me to try taking all of my weekly Arava on one day per week instead of the daily 10 mg because it is messing with my stomach and my daughter and i have researched for days on end and neither of us can fnd anything on this way of prescribing.
It seems dangerous ??
It sounds scary bacause one one the side effects could be ten and or sjs. Both of those are horrible and you could die from your skin falling off.
I started a week ago and I feel super exhausted. Not sure if that’s a side effect? No stomach issues though so that’s good. How long did it take to see a difference on the Leflunomide (Arava brand name) ?
I have been on it since April and the pain is better and the inflammation is a lot better I just wish I could go outside with out the Ray's making me sick and itchy.
Hi Dr. Just put me on Arava. 1 pill a day. 20mg. Any side effects? Does it work for any of you?
I Have Sle Fibromaygia Ranauds Ibs and Sjogrens and Generalized Aniexty Ptsd And major depressive disorder. I take Hydroxychoriquin and other meds for my other conditions my rheumatologist said she would be monitoring my blood counts the only side effect she said that could be a problem is diarrhea. Should I be concerned I'm nervous about taking a new medication.
I have been on Arava for the last 8 months and its been great, I am back to work! Keeping good communication with doctor helps! It took several different meds before I got to Arava. but fear my body is becoming immune to it. Is it possible?
