Common Treatments and RA

Posted on April 02, 2018

"I'm curious, what treatments have worked for you? I'm 24 years old and I just want to live my life as normal as possible. I have an appointment with a new Rheumatologist in a couple of weeks. I know everyone's body and reaction to the meds is different I just want to hear about your experiences." -A member on myRAteam

On myRAteam, the social network and online support group for those living with rheumatoid arthritis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Common treatments are one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about common treatments:

What can I expect being on Humira?

What else can I do to prevent my hands from being so painful?

Have you experienced liver cirrhosis or fibrosis from methotrexate use?

How is it to go from a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug (DMARD) to a biologic?

Here are some conversations about common treatments:

My days have been really good and pain-free for the most part since I have started taking CBD oil.

Has anyone went off Humira and back on and if so what was your experience?

I have been on Methotrexate now for 7 months, Plaquinil for 4 months.

I take methotrexate once a week...today is the dreaded day. I am SO nauseous and tired.

Can you relate?

Have another topic you'd like to discuss or explore? Go to myRAteam today and start the conversation. You'll be surprised just how many others may share similar stories.
