Wow, why are you on so many things after having just been diagnosed and what did your doc mean by his eye sight comment?

Why wouldn't you be on so many things?They want to hit it hard & fast to eliminate chance of damage & control pain & symptoms.I hate hearing when a young person gets RA. I'm just glad they're being aggressive with the treatment.The Plaquenil can cause sight problems & that's why you get scheduled eye exams but it is VERY rare.
