There is a lot of ways to slow down its progress. I am currently on Humira, methotrexate, and sulfasalazine.

Some people start on prednisone. If you have been diagnosed by your doctor, make sure you see a rheumatologist. They specialize in helping people with RA.

they are meany drugs that use in manegmeant of rheumtoid arthritis,thus the manegmeant depaind on the severity stage of disease.
A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) is indicated for pain and stiffness resulting from inflammatory rheumatic disease. Drugs are also used to influence the disease process itself .For rheumatoid arthritis these disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) include penicillamine, gold salts, antimalarials (chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine), drugs that affect the immune response, and sulfasalazine; corticosteroids may also be of value Drugs which may affect the disease process in psoriatic arthritis include sulfasalazine, gold salts, azathioprine, methotrexate and etanercept. For long-term control of gout uricosuric drugs and allopurinol can be used. for more ditails you return to BNF.
