Jul 16, 2011 (Started May 28, 2010)

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for psoriatic arthritis)
  • Side effects
    Mild (dark colored urine)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 2000 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It took some time for me to feel the effects take place but a few months into it, for the first time in a few years, I had a completely pain-free hand. My blood work improved with sulfasalazine much sooner than I started to feel relief. I had no side-effects whatsoever (aside from yellow pee).
Cost: $25-49 monthly
Side effects: dark colored urine
