A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hello everyone I was wondering if anyone takes Quinacrine and if so how does it work for you. I just added this to the other handful of medicines I take. They added this because I've been in a flare for about a month now and my skin is really being affected. Please let me know. Thanks

@ Gee, I took it once in place of plaquinil. It gave some vivid dreams and eventually I developed a rash so it was stopped. I have used steroid cream for my skin flares.

It's not going well. I'm stopping that and now going to have Rituxan infusion tomorrow. Kinda scared but hoping it will work. Thanks

Hello SusanLavery I'm doing ok I did 2 doses of Rituxan and they say that should last 4-6 months. I had minor side effect fever, headache,sore throat stuff like that. I must say it has helped. My flare that I had at the time went down. I still have a slight rash on my nose area. My muscle and joints are feeling better. Everything is not completely gone but I am feeling much better. Thank u for checking in I hope u are feeling better now.

Hi, Gee. I'm just getting back into things after being away for so many weeks (nearly a month, really). I was flat on my back from a bug that not only wouldn't go away but sent me into a horrible flare. Luckily, I think I've returned to the world of the living! I just wanted to check in w/you & see how you're doing. How are you making out w/your infusion?

How are you feeling? How is it going with your new meds? Are you tolerating them alright? I hope all is going well.....
