I wonder how many of us are sensitive to medication. I know I am. Just curious about this and the connection to RA; or if there is a connection. Do you feel you get more side effects than most people?

Yes, we become more sensitive to the meds and the Sun, for sure. My daughter bought a screen for my side of the car, to keep the Sun out. If I plan to be outside, I use sunscreen, wear a hat and clothing that reflects the Sun.
I hope this helps!
It is so weird...what works for one won't work for another. Humira did nothing for me, the IV meds did nothing, plaquenil made me sick. Now I am on xel janz, lefludimide and gabapentin for fibromyalgia. These work fair, however, I am getting to the point where my choices are limited. I will see ortho about a knee replacement next week. I hope he says its ok. This knee is so very painful. But I am very hopeful for us all that we can find what works!☺️
I am definitely more sensitive to medications than almost everyone I know. I have a cousin who has more issues with meds than I have. I am allergic to a great many meds and also have severe side effects to a lot of them.
I finally learned (and I'm fast - only took 2 years to figure out) not to take Methotrexate on the weekend unless I look forward to crashing the enjoyment! I now take half on Sunday night, the other half on Monday mornings. It makes me feel worse at first, exacerbating my pain. Yeah, I'm slow...🙄🙃
