I have only been taking it for two days and feel horribly sick to my stomach. I was on prednisone and feeling good and then was switched to this. I felt fine on prednisone but feel horrible with this. I'm hoping this will go away??

Comment:
Got my doctor to let me try SSZ rather than Methotrexate he had recommended. MTX, a chemo drug, sounded bad and would not allow me to enjoy my evening glass of wine.Took about 4 months on SSZ before RA symptoms in my hands abated to be very minor and only present if I really stress my wrist joints. When RA was at its worst, I could hardly button my shirts, open a cabinet door or twist the lid off ... Show Full Comment
