If your diagnosis is correct, then all these medicines may be needed. Treatment must be taken under strict supervision of a doctor. Frequent blood/urine/other tests may be required to regulate the treatment. Most of these drugs are toxic. Be careful.
Rheumatoid arthritis can be under control by taking medicines. It can not be cured so we can not say that this medicine is best to cure. So you have to consult an orthopaedic.
