The ACR has put together information on some of the most common medications used to treat rheumatic disease. Understanding your condition and how to manage it can increase your confidence in making changes to improve and maintain your health. These sheets will help you start taking action to understand your condition.

Thank you for your interest in our patient education materials. In an effort to ensure we are providing the most up-to-date information possible, please note that we are currently in the process of updating all of our materials in preparation of the launch of our new website – currently slated for July 2015. Feel free to send any suggestions or concerns to PR@rheumatology.org during this process.
