In brief: Everything!

Consensus drug of first choice by the acr and eular (american & european rheumatology groups for treating moderate to severe ra.
Frequently given with other drugs such as plaquenyl, sulfasalazine, or low dose prednisone. I beleve it is better to take subcutaneously, rather than oral. Should be given with folic acid.
