I am using sulfasalazine to treat my ra.
How long should you use an RA medicine before you try something different?

Oliver94 I would say you should stop taking a medication for RA only after it stops working or no longer gives you the relief and help that it once did. I know I have been on many that either stopped working completely or I was allergic too. Best indication for me has always been the inflammation numbers - if they are starting to go up then it is time to talk to your Dr. about changing up your medication.
Three months. Longer for different types of medication.
