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?
