HI everyone.. I was just wondering if anyone has used Arava. What did it do for you or not. And if it did help, for how long. I just started it a week ago. and I can't tell if it's the prednisone or the Arava. He wants me to try to get off the prednisone after a month. Well, ween off it. But he said if i can't do it just to go back on it. I only take 5 mgs.
I always have nausea and headaches that are weird in nature. But i noticed which may be coincidental that the nausea is better. I do feel more energy turn
Is that even possible.. I thought they couldn't do anything about that.. for RA or FM.? confused

Anyway, I would love to hear from anyone on this. Wondering if the Arava is worth my while. eyes Thank you, Laura :-)

Laura,
I haven't tried that drug, but I guarantee that someone on here has. You might get a better turnout if you gave your post a subject. Just some advice! I hope you find what you are looking for! ((((Hugs))))
Thanks!
