Rheumatoid Arthritis and Actonel
I have been taking actonel for about 4 months and for some reason in the last 6 weeks or so, my Rheumatoid Arthritis has flared up very bad even although I am still on predisone which has worked great for years. I would like to know if anyone in the study had a flare up with their arthritis while on actonel?
I have not seen any reports of a flare-up of RA on bisphosphonates.
