Hi, this is my first time here. I have RA, was diagnosed in 2012. On MTX and Hydroxy. I still get horrible side effects with the MTX and it drives me a bit mad. My disease isn't really under control right now, so it's a bit meh. Anyway, It's lovey to be here!

    Hello @NEH welcome to the online community

    You have had RA for a number of years now and take MTX and Hydroxychloroquine which don't particularly suit you. Our members have lots of experience of this combination of medication and I hope will be able to give you the benefit of their advise and ways of coping.

    Have you been in touch with your Rheumatology department about the side effects you experience ? It may be that they can assist with an adjustment of dosage or advice to help you.

    I attach some information which I hope will be helpful

    We are glad you found us and hope that you will be able to browse round the discussions and activities and join in with us again soon.

    Best wishes
