Default Arava

I have been on Arava for 5 months and have experienced a blood pressure increase, a pounding heartrate, hairloss, and some episodes of diarrhea. I have also had increased energy and fluid range of motion. I have taken advantage of this increased energy and movement to take a walk after work or bike. My lft's have been in the acceptable range. I have gotten my blood pressure down also with weight loss. It is a trade-off, definitely, but worth it to be able to move again without much pain.
