Please be careful if you've been prescribed Arava. I started on it in late October, developed severe kidney and liver complications, and ended up in the hospital for the entire month of January. AT one point I had .04 white blood cells left, which is a complication. The Hospitalist told me that the FDA has required Novartis to put a 'black box warning' on the drug but that they haven't complied yet. Very scary stuff. I'm sure that it's a lifesaver for some people. Not for me. I've been on Myfortic since then with absolutely no problems.
My next option is Atemra. Any feedback?
