Subject: rheumatooid arthritis - DMARDS

New chat.
I have recently started on Hyrdroxychloroquine and Sulfasalazine 6 weeks ago. To date there has been no
effect and I ma interested in anyone's experience as to when I might see an improvement. I am still on steroids.

Hi John, I have been on them both for years now. Sulphasalasine was the first one I started on and I think after a few week of taking 4 a day there was a bit improvement, it was only when hydroxychloooquine was added that i noticed a difference. That was around 20 years ago and I now get rituximab (biologic drug) Hopefully you should feel a benefit soon and if not speak to the rheumatologist again. Good luck
