sulfasalazine

Hello,
I have  been diagnosed with Undifferiented Connective Tissue Disease. I am on several meds including Plaqunil.  I recently stopped the Plaquenil due to extreme everyday dizziness and nausea. My Rheumy placed me on Salfasalazine, but it too has a bad side effect of a rapid heartbeat.  I am in question as to if anyone else had these same experiences and what medication worked for you. I am told I have pre- lupus and the medication is to prevent the full on-set of Lupus. I take Mobic, but mobic alone can't stop the Pluerisy attacks in my ribs & lungs. My toes are stiff, my chest is usually tight, my knees sometimes hurt and my hands and fingers get stiff.  I tried to stopped the PLaqunil, but had 2 pluerisy flare ups in my ribs and lungs and I had a very hard time with it..   Thk U.. Pls advise.
