Finally,my PVP gave a drug that has been around for 20+ years. After 5 days I could tell a difference. It is called Plaquenil (Generic for HYDROXYCHLOR) It really is working for me! No more feeling like I am dying and unable to get out of the bed. Joints pain and sweeling is getting a kick in the a** for now. I have a new appt. with a new RA Dr. so maybe I will be ahead of he game. I am starting classes in the health field in Aug 2012 so I need to be the best I can be by then. Hope this helped someone out there. Just sharing can cross barriers. Don't give up!
