I Have Just Been Prescribed Leflunomide (Generic For Arava) Has Any One Else Used This And Does It Help?? Any Side Effects??

I use arava in conjunction with my biologic Humira. I am also taking anti inflammatory Daypro and plaquenil. I seem to have leveled out, but still have flares from time to time when i over do it. I am a very active person with a high pain tolerance, so sometimes I do too much. I am not take any kind of pain medication but over the counter tylenol

I have been on it for over 2 years with no reactions, except if I spend to much time in the sun I will get a rash

I was prescribed with Leflunomide but I had bad reactions - I only took it for a week and I had rashes all over my body so my RA stopped me from taking it. Now i'm on Sulfasalazine 4 pills daily going on now about 6 weeks. It's this trial and error kind of thing -
