My Doctor Prescribed Leflunomide 20 Mg Today

My Doctor Prescribed Leflunomide 20 Mg Today

Has anyone taken this drug with success? I could not take methotrexate. Also woke up with swollen neck(back of neck) anyone ever had that? I’m new at this so I always have many questions.

I take leflunomide 20 mg have been on it almsot a year, i also take enbrel. I love leflunomide its always been my “back burner medicine” it has always stayed constant as i have tried methotrexate, humira and now enbrel (which seems to be my perfect combination-enbrel and leflunomide) the only side effects i had initially was headaches and they were terrible but after a few weeks stopped completely! I really do believe in this medication! Good luck!

I take it. I’ve been on it for about two years with no problem. Unfortunately things have changed for me and will be adding Humira in the near future. Best of luck to you on your treatment plan!

Methotrexate messed with my liver levels so I was taken off of it.
