I've been on this medication for a month now and my RA pain is worse since my doctor decided to take me off Plaquenil. My flares have increased, the joint pain and swelling are constant and I have very little desire to do anything. I've made adjustments to my work schedule and that is helping, but typing outside of work (I'm a writer) or knitting (Christmas gifts) causes more pain and discomfort.

And, does anybody know of additional resources for financial assistance with paying for this medication? The doctor gave me the first 30 days free, and will possibly give me a second month. If not, I don't know what I'm going to do.
