    I have had a good experience except it makes me loose my appetite to the point of my losing over 20lbs. Ive started working on eating more & maintaining as I prefer this than going to other meds.

    This medication made feel horrible. I had trouble breathing and the day after taking it could barely get out of bed. I would feel a little better after the first day but still had shortness of breath.

    Using 20 mg once a week for about 8 years. No flare ups, only side effects are fatigue and need for naps. I can do full range of activities-bike, hike, fish, hunt, tennis and golf but not for as long duration. Very stiff after exercise or activity BUT NO PAINFUL FLAREUPS that used to leave me with useless limbs.

    have taken 20mg for 5 yrs now also 500mcg folic acid 2 times a day this stops the mouth sores ,has given me much less pain, I used to live on very heavy addictive pain killers, they are not the answer , they only mask and can make you feel crazy.

    I have been taking this for 22 years with excellent results. I play tennis, hike, do yard work with no problems if I limit to about 4 hours a day. started with 3 pills a week, now take 6 per week. Occasional flare, maybe 2 or 3 per year, requires a couple of advil or if more severe maybe 4 day dosepack of prednisone. No side effects at this time. I do regular blood tests to check.
