I looked into this. It seems to have a following based on this; however, the medical community seems to caution its use for these matters. Would be interested to hear from other members, so I am bumping this discussion.
Have you ever tried baking soda?

I am currently taking methotrexate and plaquinil once a day. Right now I am having issues with my ankle and inflammation, just won't heal and it's hard to be around people.

@Coco1933 do you have severe RA in your hands also?

There are collection sites in most areas by the DEA that will take unused prescriptions or expired prescriptions. You can find one closest to you by this link DEA-registered collectors.
Here is more information by the FDA on proper disposal if there is no DEA-registered collector in your area.

I don't have much issue with my hands just yet. I have had RA and Lupus for lost 10 years. It's been so hard to deal with.
