Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 days ago):

  • Our 6 year old was diagnosed 4 years ago, polyarticular JRA. She did about 1 year of sulfasalazine combined with prednisone. Then the next year was prednisone and methotrexate. We came of off prednisone in March and remain on 7.5mg of methotrexate once a week.

    She is extremely hyper. She NEVER sits still and is constantly bouncing around. She can't even sit down/sit still long enough to eat a meal.

    We thought that she would calm down a few months after coming off of prednisone since she was on it for 2 years, but that didn't happen. Now we are curious as to whether the hyperness is a result of the methotrexate or a permanent result of the prednisone. Any guidance is appreciated.

    Thank you

  • I took Lamictal in 2004 for 3 years then went off it during my pregnancy. My psychiatrist put me back on it 3 weeks ago. Now I'm having debilitating stiffness and weakness in low back and alternating in hips. My feet and legs are so stiff I can hardly walk. I also have awful insomnia.

    I read Lamicttal can rarely cause rheumatoid arthritis. I was diagnosed with RA in 2012, but I wonder if I'm in that 2% of the population.
