MANAGING RHEUMATOID Q & A – VOL V
About the book
Volume -5 focuses on two drugs ‘Sulfasalazine’ and ‘Hydroxychloroquine’. They have been in clinical use for over 50 years and they were the recommended first choice for managing rheumatoid arthritis prior to the introduction of methotrexate aggressive therapy and pyramidal approach in DMARD prescription. The lack of further studies and probable bias in the clinical trials toward biologics have made these drugs less preferred in routine clinical practice. The present volume provides the most up-to-date information regarding the current status, safety and efficacy, adverse events, and the precautionary measures to be adopted while prescribing these drugs.
