Hi,I am new to this forum and have had Rheumatoid Arthritis for over 20 years,I am really struggling to find a suitable medication,I have tried numerous different drugs and two different types of biological therapy’s,they have either just stopped working or the side effects have been too severe,such as huge mouth ulcers,extreme indigestion,bad hair loss and more.I am 67 years old and have been waiting for a total knee replacement for over two years as three years ago the X-ray showed bone on bone.I had a stroke when I was 41 years old and suffer from diverticulitis and IBS.Has anyone any information on the RA drug called Leflunomide,I am trying to lower my blood pressure so I can start this drug and would be very grateful te hear other experience of Leflunomide and it’s side effects,thank you for reading this post,regards Annie.
