May I suggest you move your research to Google Advanced. You go to Google search engine and then type in Google Advanced. You can find out much about RA. Now some articles you pay for and some are free. The free ones will keep you busy. Look at it this way. You are in a battle and information are your weapons.
Glad you are here to find some answers. I wish you the best.

Have you tried sulfasalazine? I started w plaquenil (no problems so far), added methotrexate injections, low dose, six weeks ago (so far so good), but I'm still using more pain Meds than I'd like.
I wanted to try sulfasalazine in addition.
Have you (or anyone) tried it (w mtx and plaquenil) or thought about it?

there are several drugs now that you can take instead of the plaquenil. these type of drugs they have now work in a different way then the methotrexate and plaquenil. most of these drugs you will still take the methotrexate. i researched these drugs before i made my decision and so for myself i started on the enbril and boy what a difference.but because of insurance issues from aug 09 until this month i have had to use the enbrel sparingly and my feet now well, i don't know if i can get them back in shape.it is important that we stop this disease as quick as possible before it gets us where we can no longer walk and do for ourselves. remember one of the most important things we can do is RESEARCH RESEARCH
