Hi everyone, my name's Becky and I am new to this forum. I have recently been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis and I am going to see the consultant on 9th May to discuss treatment. Last time we met he said he would probably prescribe sulfasalazine. I have read up about this a bit and I feel really scared about taking it because of the possibility that the suppression of my immune system will result in me constantly being ill with stomach upsets, colds etc. I am already doing "all the right things" ie exercising, eating healthily, washing hands a lot, so I do find it a bit frustrating to be told to do those things and it will all be ok.
Does anyone have experience of taking sulfasalazine that they can share with me so I know a bit more about what I'm getting myself into?
