Hello, I have RA and have been put on Arava to help control the disease. I m also taking prednisone with it at the moment 5 mg. My Rheumatologist is away for the week and I will be out of town also for the week. I ve been having trouble with RA pain still, and I m also starting to have abdominal problems. forceful heartbeat, nausea, heartburn etc. just feel awful. What will happen if I just stop taking it until I can get in touch with my dr?
