Hello, I am cured for arthritis rheumatoid by some medicine like chloroquine (200 mg per day),methothraxet(50 mg per mounth), predinisilone(5 mg per day). I am almost good but do you think for future side effects need to change the drugs?

Please do not change your drugs.

You are obviously doing very well and we do not want the disease to become active again.
The side-effects can be monitored with tests and are generally uncommon.
RA is a lifelong disease and you need to stay on treatment for life.
