  • Leflunomide

    Leflunomide is indeed an immunosuppressive disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD) that is used in the treatment of active moderate-to-severe rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis.

  • Taking Arava -Leflunomide

    Arava is available as oral tablets in 10 mg, 20 mg, and 100 mg doses.A dose of 10 mg or 20 mg is usually taken once a day as a single tablet. In some cases, it may be prescribed every other day.Rheumatologists used to start Arava with three loading doses of 100 mg per day. This is not usually done any more because there is a greater risk of side effects at this dose.


    It usually takes 6 to 8 weeks for Arava to start working, and it can take up to 6 months to feel the maximum effect.
