Hello Soma
Thank you for getting in touch. From what I make out, you were diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis around 20 years ago and took medicines for sometime only. I couldn't exactly make out which medicines you took. In today's world we managed Rheumatoid Arthritis with Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and Nonsteroidal Antiinflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs). Although there are many other drugs which are available, not all of them are used due to their side effects. I would suggest you to get in touch with you physician and start with therapy. Hope this helped
