If you need any of the other NSAIDS try to take the aspirin as far apart in time as possible to your dose of NSAID, the NSAIDS can block the aspirin effect when their blood levels are high.
    Is Sulfasalazine NSAID?

    I've checked. It isn't.
    Of the other two RA drugs, Methotrexate and Naproxen, now terminated, I was on, Naproxen is the NSAID.
    So at the moment I'm not prescribed NSAIDS.

    No. But I have no idea as to any other interactions. There may be non significant. The trouble is that as you take more drugs the potential for interactions increases I only mentioned the asprin Nsaids as one I know about.
    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.

    I have been on Sulfa....... for many, many years. It's pretty much the first RAmed' I was prescribed all those years ago and remains a constant. Others have been added, subtracted and replaced in an ongoing pursuit of RA Nirvana culminating in Naproxen and Methotrexate which have been prescribed together for about twelve years give or take. Side effects associated with those have become more apparent and severe over the last 6-8 months or so which triggered off these investigations by urology and cardiology departments. The Metho' and Nap' were stopped a while ago and as a consequence I have more RA discomfort/pain [tolerable] but no inflamation of the joints. The RA appears to be in a slight remission at the moment. That is very unlikely to be permanent and my RA man assures me that as and when required he has other "poisons" to use on me. Hey, shit happens.

    As I think I said before, I'm bloody glad I only have a bit of old age Osteo. Nothing to what you chaps have put up with over the years. And even you are lucky compared with some of the wrecks I saw 30 years ago before management got even as good as it is now. Far from perfect I know.

    There is no doubt RA is a bastard. Plus the osteo in my shoulders and feet. At times almost intolerable. However I have to stress that I feel lucky. Lucky in that whenever I attend my six monthly RA clinic there are always some there worse off than me, some of whom are also considerably younger than me. I'm also blessed in terms of the attention to detail and care of monitoring and treatment I receive via the NHS.
