I was taking sulfasalazine but it made my liver levels go up so the rheumatologist took me off of it and put me on Plaquinel. I've been on the Plaquinel for 2.5 months and it's not helping at all.

Hi, I have been on methotrexate, Plaquinel, Gold shots (which worked great after awhile but bad blood tests so had to change) now on Sulfasalazine for past several months but no relief. I asked why no biological he said my RA nott bad enough. When originally tested the result was 585 so was referred immed to RA clinic. I have had surgery on my index finger for a RA lump.

Awful disease before diagnosed I had no idea how bad it really is... Scary.
