I was diagnosed with RA recently and have just joined the forum. After a visit to my GP with questions I had after picking up new medications I have been prescribed he suggested trying to stop the anti inflammatories (naproxen) while I take methotrexate. He did go on to say that lots of people do take both medications and are ok on them. I have noticed that pain and stiffness is increasing since stoping the anti inflammatories and I think I'm going to have to go back on them but I'm concerned about why there needs to be caution about taking the two together. I wondered if you might know at all?
