... would kill me before the disease! I have now gone on sulfasalazine. I have been on it for about six weeks.showing some signs of improvements! I was wondering if anyone is on this medication and does anyone feel a little nervous or anxious from this medication? I also wonder if someone has had longterm results? I only have wrist involvement and two fingers. I sometimes feel extremly week and low energy! Is this common or could it be from medication? I sometimes feel like I can barely make it through my work day! Is anyone out here from Lancaster pa area would love to be able to meet someone. From area that I could relate to who also has RA?
I'm not from pa, but I am in your shoes. I just got diagnosed this year and got put on sulfasalazine 2 months ago. I was fatigued and tired before the medication, so I think that has more to do with the ra. Remember, your body is fighting itself. Sulfasalazine has been rough on my stomach, so I always make sure to when I take the drugs. I also noticed recently that my skin can be a little yellow and will sometimes turn my white towel yellow. Weird. My doc put me on this as it "had the fewest health risks". I feel good about it. Good luck!
