Prescribing Information for Disease Modifying Anti Rheumatic Drugs (DMARDs) for Healthcare Professionals


Disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) are a class of drugs, which are designed to influence the course of a disease, not simply treat symptoms. They require regular monitoring as they can increase the risk of infections and complications. They fall into two categories: biologic or non-biologic.

Please refer to the CKS: DMARDs (NICE, September 2021).
