    Yes. I'd been on methotrexate and hydroxychloroquine for a few months, but my symptoms were still only slowly improving.

    My rheumatologist decided I would have sulphasalazine as well, with a gradually increasing dose.

    I had terrible nausea, and after I had been on the full dose a few weeks I also developed a pinprick rash on my feet and lower legs. I phoned my rheumatology specialist nurse and I was told to stop the sulphasalazine.

    Nausea and diarrhoea were a problem for me with methotrexate too until I was finally prescribed it via subcutaneous injection, which made a big difference.
