    I was dx with RA back in November..initially started having joint pain in September. I was immediately put on Methotrexate (now at 6 pills) and folic acid (now at 3mg). I cannot take sterioids due to being Type 1 Diabetic.

    I have had a lot of mouth sores and hair loss, with new joint pain, so my doctor has tweaked my meds. Here is what I take now:

    Tramadol 50mg (at night for pain)
    Nabumetone (instead of Naproxen)
    Fish Oil
    Vitamin D
    B12
    Biotin (hair)
    Lysine (mouth sores)

    I have noticed a difference in energy with the B12, but so far haven't noticed any other changes.

    What supplements are others on? How long did it take to notice a difference? Any others you would recommend?
