Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) are a group of medications commonly used in people with rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). They work by work suppressing the body's overactive immune and/or inflammatory systems and take effect over weeks or months.
