Subject: how do you get on with leflunomide?

saw my rheumy yesterday, discussing medication options as, since I have breast cancer and am receiving chemo can't be put on any disease modifying medications. However, we've been discussing me returning to anti-tnf, much to my oncologists discuss. However, the oncologist doesn't know much about leflunomide so may let me go on it.

I would like to know anyone that is / has been on this medication and what they think of it and what side effects they've had so I know what's in store.

thanks guys and happy christmas

Hi. I've been on lefluonomide for a few years now and it's been quite successful for me. I would try it but they do say it takes about 3 months to get into your system properly.
