Worked very very slow but after 1.5 years symptoms (pain) was gone but still didn't have strength back in my hands. Then it came back on very fast. It's now been three years and still pain. I don't care for sulfasalazine, only working partially for me and I'm stuck with doctors that can't listen.

Comment:
This medicine sent me into liver failure, with liver enzymes at 700 after taking it for only 1 month. I nearly died. I took aloe juice and organic food to recover. I am now allergic to rice, potatoes, tomatoes, black pepper, bananas, onions, and chilis. I also cannot take any modern medications since I will always get the side effects.
