In brief: Blood and RA meds

It is best to discuss these numbers with your rheumatologist.
There are significant side effects of all these medications, although many other issues including diet and exercise may be another cause of the findings here. Serum folate levels may be of some value, and adjustment of the medications you are now on should be considered
