my new medicine is Arava

Hello! I’m on Taltz (for a year), and it’s not working. I feel like I'm getting worse every day. I went to my rheumatologist today, and he added Arava.

Anyone on Arava? I would like to know the ups and downs and your thoughts!

Thank you,

Dedra Davis

  2. Hey ! Sorry to read that Taltz isn't making a difference for you 😔 I don't have personal experience with Arava, but I was able to find this great article where shares her experiences with it: https://psoriatic-arthritis.com/living/experiences-taking-leflunomide I hope you'll get some more input from the community here too. Wishing you the very best for finding some relief. Please keep us posted on how you're doing if you can! -Catherine, Community Moderator

    1. Thank you, , for guiding me to Leanne’s post. It helped, and I asked her some follow-up questions!

      1. hi! 😍 I’ m on arava for 4 years now. It took me about 3 months in combination with medrol to work, but It worked.

    2. I've been on it for one month now. I don't see a lot of difference, but I'm willing to keep going for a bit if it will help me. Thank you for letting me know. Have a blessed day!
