Medication Information

The Australian Rheumatology Association (ARA) and Arthritis Australia are pleased to provide the following patient information, for your easy access and downloading.


The development of the Medicine Information Sheets has been a collaborative effort between many members of the ARA in consultation with Arthritis Australia.  Thank you to the members of the ARA Therapeutics Committee for their efforts in developing these valuable patient information sheets.

In addition we have a resource Your Guide to Safe Disposal of Sharps which can be found here.

We would welcome any feedback on the sheets and where they could be improved for future updates.  Comments can be forwarded to the ARA Secretariat:
