How to get rid the side effects of the medicines?

Good Morning Dr. I am 40 years old. I am RA positive and also have auto immune disorder. I started with Wysolone 15 mg, then reduced to 10 mg, 7.5 and now on 5 mg dosage. Also taking HCQS 200, Folitrax 15 mg, Diasol and Ultracet. for Meralgia Paresthetica, I am prescribed Maxgalin M 75 mg. Is it safe to have this combination? I am using this Wysolone, HCQS and Folitrax for more than 1.5 years. Earlier, 10 years back, I used to just take Saaz and HCQS. which one is better? I have side effects like weight gain, hair loss, skin rashes, uneven skin tone on the face.

Hello Dr Faisal here,
I have read and understood your query, I will suggest you to continue this combination of drugs as its safe in long run.No drug is better than other, as it depends on your symptom relief and side effects if any, which makes choices of drugs among many DMARDS (disease modifying anti rheumatic drugs like folitrax,saaz ,HCQ). HCQ may cause hair fall.Weight gain is related to maxgalin-m and higher doses of wysolone .(safe to take 5mg of it).Hair loss, skin rashes and coarse skin are included in spectrum of symptoms of RA too.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take Care
Regards.
