I ve been diagnosed with RA due to a pretty high RA factor but have no pain and, as yet, no joint deformity other than some osteo in my hands. I was originally diagnosed with CPPD, have recurring swelling in knees, a high nucleated cell count but now, after two years, no intracellular calcium crystals. Rheumatologist, a rather doddery one, wants me to start on Azulfadine after 5 months on meloxicam haven t helped keep fluid off knees. I m reluctant to take a heavy duty drug when I have no pain, no symmetrical joint derformity, no RA in xrays, and no pain. Do you think I ought to at least try Azulfadine?

Does Azulfidine interact with any medications given for siroccis of the liver or affect the liver in any way? For years every time I eat I immediately have diarrhea. This is problem which I originally went to gastrologist with when they found the siroccis. It is now 4th stage and is not related to alcohol. I heard it is used for Chrone s disease but have not been diagnosed with Chrones.
