 2  RA Diarrhea, stomach pain, back pain. This was very odd symptoms, the pain was so severe I had to go to the emergency room. I thought I was having gallstones, hernia or appendicitis...the ER doctors didnít seem to think it was medication related, because he was not familiar with RA medications he said...I also had hair loss and very dry skin.

LEFLUNOMIDE  (LEFLUNOMIDE):  This medication is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, a condition in which the body's defense system (immune system) fails to recognize the body as itself and attacks the healthy tissues around the joints. Leflunomide helps to reduce the joint damage/pain/swelling and helps you to move better. It works by weakening your immune system and decreasing swelling (inflammation).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
