I am taking folitrax10mg tablets once a week. I also take ARAVA 10 mg daily as prescribed my doctor.
I am under this treatment for Rhematoid arthriti for the last 3 months.. I also take etodoloc 300mg once a day.
I feel better now .
What are the possible side effects.
Etodolac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, used to treat pain, fever and swelling.
Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and stomach irritation.
Arava contains the active ingredient Leflunomide, it helps treat the pain and lessens the damage to joints.
Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, liver damage and anemia.
To be quite honest, if I was taking a combination of these medications, I would want to be very careful about what they did to my stomach, since they can all cause stomach irritation, in one form or another, and this can lead to conditions, such as ulcers or gastritis. I'd discuss it with my doctor, to make sure it was safe and, if they agreed, I'd add a regular dosage of something such as Pepcid or Prevacid, both they and their generics are available over the counter in most countries.
Allow me to assure you tht gastritis is a very miserable condition, that you don't want to experience.
Are there any other comments or questions?
