Welcome to HCM
rEAD YOUR PROB.RA is a autoimmune diease, the drugs which used in RA called diease modifying drug as they cannot cure diease but improve life style n life expectancy by subsiding symptoms. sazo 500mg tab can affact your pregnancy as it is cause of infertility, n thrombocytopenia which again cause of abortion. so discuss it with you doc as it is not safe in pregnancy but safer then other drugs which used in RA.
