Hi,Thanks for your query. After going through your query I came to know that you are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. You are not fully control of it by disease modifying agents so probably you need to increase doses of disease modifying agent. You need to take folic acid and vitamin B-complex with vitamin C. You can consult rheumatologist for it. You can discuss with your treating Doctor about it. I do hope that you have found something helpful. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries. Wishing you good health. Take care.
