I had a good experience with the med, Arava (brand name), but it dramatically increased my triglycerides & cholesterol. My RA dr took me off of it only because of the rapid rise in numbers. I do know that if you are planning on having children, you shouldn't be on it, but I don't know the 1/2 life of the medication. It's definitely something to discuss with your rheumatologist. Good luck to you...
