I'm new here, Leflunomide - what's the deal? Your experience would be appreciated...


Hi, I'm new here - I've been living with Seronegative / Psoriatic Arthritis for about 8 years now - it was being quite well managed with Methotrexate and NSAIDS but after some recent trauma and a progression of my disease - Methotrexate doesn't work so I'm taking Leflunomide - I know it's Cytotoxic but some of the side effects are scary (I'm a 41 year old male).

If it's at all possible, if anyone else (I'm assuming there will be many) has taken this medication for a while at least, can you assure me that it's ok (or not) please ?
