How to Prevent Rheumatoid Arthritis Flares
5. Take your medications on schedule.
The most important thing you can do to avoid a flare is to take your medicine on time. A regular schedule helps you keep a constant level of medication in your body. Don't skip doses. Use a pill box, calendar, or alarm to help stay on track.
Call your doctor right away if you feel a flare coming on. He may be able to tweak your meds to get your symptoms under control.
