Take leflunomide by mouth as directed by your doctor. Due to the long half-life in individuals with RA and recommended dosing interval (24 hours), a loading dose is needed to provide steady-state concentrations more rapidly. It is recommended that leflunomide therapy be initiated with a loading dose of 100 mg leflunomide per day for 3 days. Elimination of the loading dose regimen may decrease the risk of adverse events. Consult your doctor for more details.
For maintenance therapy, daily dosing of 20 mg is recommended for treatment of patients with RA. Doses higher than 20 mg/day are not recommended. If dosing at 20 mg/day is not well tolerated, the dose may be decreased to 10 mg daily. Liver enzymes must be monitored and dose adjustments may be necessary.
Adverse reactions associated with the use of leflunomide in RA include diarrhea, elevated liver enzymes, alopecia, rash, abscess, cyst, fever, hernia, malaise, pain.
If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor promptly. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor.
