Combination Therapy for RA

Doctors are discovering that the best way to ease swelling, improve movement, and reduce damage caused by RA is to treat it early and aggressively. This could mean taking more than one RA drug at the same time. This is called combination therapy.  If you have early and active RA, combination therapy may be the best way to get your RA under control and stop your symptoms.

How Safe Are Biologics for RA?

If you see a rheumatologist for your rheumatoid arthritis, there’s a good chance you’re taking a medication called a biologic response modifier. About 40 to 45 percent of patients that rheumatologists treat for RA take one of these drugs.  They’re called biologics because they’re made from a living organism, rather than being produced from chemicals in a lab. And although they don’t cure RA, they are highly effective in controlling the symptoms and preventing further joint damage.
