Just wanted to know when u were first diagnosed with RA what was the first meds u were put on? My doc wants to put me on methotrexate and I want to try plaquenil first. Seeing how I will have this for the rest of my life I think I will have plenty of time to get on methotrexate after I have completed my family. Did any of u take plaquenil and if so did it work at least for awhile?

I was diagnosed at age 8. My first med was aspirin. 10 a day. I was on plaquenel too. It didnt really do anything for me. You have to have special eye tests done too which are a pain too. Not that they are painful, just takes extra time.

I was also on methotrexate for a very short time. I HATED it. Why dont you want to try that?
