I have been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. I had been taking sulphasalazine but stopped taking it the middle of December. I am still with the dawn team and feeling better for not taking the tablets

    High kingy I've just recently found this forum myself, so nice to meet you. I also have RA and have been living with it now for 10 years. One of the meds they put me on a few years back was sulphazaline. I was on it for about 8 months before I had to be taken it off it, so I know how hard it can be. I know from living with RA how much it impacts on our day to day lives and it can leave you drained not only physically but mentally to..So it's good to talk or ask questions with people who are going through exactly the same thing.
