I only found this forum a little while ago and it's been to helpful already.
I currently am taking hydroxychloroquine but I think it's stopping working sadly.
The last visit to the rheumatologist he mentioned the next drug being methotrexate and quite honestly I'm terrified of it.
I've a friend who takes is and she told me they call it "the dirty drug" as it's so harmful to your body even though for her it does good.
I've been googling endlessly about it and s huge number of people seem to report weight gain as a side effect of this drug. Just wondered if this was the case with people on this forum.
I'd really want to avoid excessive weight if possible as my exercise regime (used to be fantastic before PR) is not great now.
