Absolutely! Our goal for the treatment of RA in 2011 is for remission which is defined as low or no disease activity (no swollen or tender joints). Current treatment practices advocate for early, aggressive treatment of RA specifically to prevent damage to joints – which is irreversible. Some patients need a combination of multiple medications (with methotrexate being the anchor) to achieve remission, and the right medication regimen for you can be determined by your rheumatologist.
