Anyone using a stronger DMARD than Plaquenil?

Hi Everyone,

I've been on injectable methotrexate for over a year. I developed an allergy to both the name brand and generic Plaquenil and needed something to help with the debilitating joint pain. I starting developing the extreme eye dryness last February and have been on Restasis for about 7 months and my symptoms have greatly improved. I'm wondering if my overall dryness issues would be worse without the methotrexate.

Anyone else on methotrexate and see improvements to your Sjogrens? Thank you for sharing!
