Hi zin,

Fish Oils are a great natural medication for RA but they do sometimes interact with certain NSAIDS. It doesn't seem to have any interaction with Methylprednisolone or leflunomide-- still I would check with your Primary Care Physician to make sure that he or she gives you the green light.

Here's a great article on RA and fish oils: http://www.empowher.com/media/reference/rheumatoid-arthritis-0
