      Make sure you take a " prescribed anti inflammatory" daily due to RA disease inflammation..as unmanaged inflammation does extreme irrepairable painful joint damage .. You should never go without this..mobic is very good and seems to be less harsh on the stomach as i have no negative symptoms ..i am in much pain all over without it..RA not managed without a prescribed daily anti inflammatory..extremely important.
