To avoid long-term consequences and disability, rheumatoid arthritis must be treated early. Disease-modifying anti-rheumatic medications, novel biologic medicines, and techniques of switching between them are all discussed in newly reported guidelines with new, more aggressive treatment plans.

However treatment for RA varied depending on disease severity from early to established, both guidelines set therapy goals to target low disease activity or remission while maintaining performance and management of pain. Conventional disease-modifying anti-rheumatic medicines are favoured and should be started as soon as possible following diagnosis, ideally within three months of the beginning of persistent symptoms.

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) and glucocorticoids are helpful for clinical and functional improvement, particularly during flares.

Antitumor necrosis factor (anti-TNF) medications and non-TNF agents are the two types of biologicals used to treat RA. Small molecules (JAK kinase inhibitors) are also another class of drugs used for the treatment of RA.

Cost, dose frequency, patient desire, and insurance protocol are all factors that influence medicine selection. If a patient does not respond to one biological treatment, evidence justifies switching to another.

Rating scales, disease activity scores (DAS), clinical status, and laboratory follow-up are used to assess treatment response. Patients should be closely supervised by their doctors.

Steroids are very important medications for the treatment of  Rheumatoid arthritis (RA). It’s available in tablets, injections, and liquid form. They aid in lowering the amount of inflammation which leads to joint pains, swelling, early morning stiffness, and limitation of joint movements also aid in the regulation of your autoimmune system, which aids in the suppression of flare-ups.

In the early stages of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) low-dose of oral steroids may be administered in addition to (Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs) DMARDs or other medications. This is due to the fact that DMARDs take some weeks to produce benefits. Steroids, on the other hand, work swiftly, and you’ll notice a difference in a matter of days. Steroids are occasionally referred to as “bridge therapy.” Steroids are recommended by all international groups in the management of Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Steroids can also be given in injectable forms as and when needed. It is critical to taper down the steroids once other medications have proven to be beneficial. Slow Withdrawal aids in the prevention of withdrawal symptoms.

Do not take or stop steroids on your own. Your Rheumatologist is trained on how to handle steroids.
