Arava, which is generically known as Leflunomide, is a DMARD type medication used to treat both rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis. Arava reduces the severity of the symptoms of arthritis and prevents structural damage to joints. It is made for adults who experience moderate to severe Arthritis.
One of the big problems with Arava is the fact that it has many contraindications with other drugs and pre-existing conditions. For example, women should not attempt to have children until two years after the cessation of use of Arava. Additionally, various infections have contraindications with Arava (AIDs, HIV, TB, and pneumonia). It is important to inform your doctor about a variety of conditions that you may have before being prescribed to this drug. If a doctor prescribes Arava without taking proper precautions or if he or she acts negligent in prescribing this drug, you might be entitled to medical malpractice compensation.
