I have had rhuematoid arthritus for 22 years and also have spinal stenosis. I have been on gold shots until it lowered my platelets, methotrexate until it gave me double lung infection and Naprosyn for 20 years. I am now disabled and am now on Arava (Leflunomide), Naprosyn, and 10 mg prednisone twice a day. Have only been on Arava for two weeks and was told it takes at least 4 weeks to work. I'm allergic to sulfer so there's not too many medicines out there without sulfer. Can't wait for this Arava to start working. Has anyone had long term results with Arava?
