I too had to stop Methotrexate. I felt hung over, Flu like 5 out of 7 days and I only took it once a week. I'm taking Leflunomide now for several years with no ill effects. Good luck!

Ive been taking leflunomide for a while now and i love it! At first, there were headaches but those go away and never come back after the first week or so. Try to hang in there, it is worth it i promise!

@A myRAteam Member, I take it in addition to my Humira injections. I have not had any adverse side effects. I didn't think it was working well until I had to come off of it when I had rotator cuff surgery a few years ago, but it is helping more than I imagined. Good luck!
