I also have had erratic heartbeat at times. Shortness of breath & irratable stomach. Wakes me up at night. EKG Normal. Still need to take prednisone 5 mg/day. Im taking 8mg metho/wk. Dr thinks maybe fibromyalgia may be cause of some issues? Stress? Wish I felt better!

Comment:
If this med was so good, I wouldn't need arava, would I? I'm terrified of the side effects. I haven't had any but I think having RA symptoms are better than the side effects of methotrexate. I wish my rheumatologist could understand my fear and discontinue this, but she says it's the best thing for me.

Been taking 10mg a week for the last 12 years. Had some mouth ulcers at first but no longer. Feel that this has really helped me from being crippled.

This drug has allowed me to lead a normal life. I can play golf if I don't play two or three days in a row.
