Triple therapy?

Mommyfor2 posted:
I am predicted to have an aggressive form of rheumatoid arthritis . My doctor has me on two dmards (plaquenil and methotrexate) and I'm doing well. I can take them with dinner and stay up for the next few hours without problems or side effects. I was wondering if I should inquire about a third DMARD to slow down joint damage before it happens. I've read many promising things about triple therapy.

Physically I'm doing well. Morning stiffness lasts a few minutes, don't take pain killers. My only complaint is my hips ache with increased activity and especially at the end of th night when I try and sleep and I've stood a lot during the day. My hips are not stiff though.
