Hi Caroline,

For my lupus I have a lot of pills to take every single day
For the Rash, it is a cream: elocom
I have vitamine D once a week
Pantoprazole for upset stomach
Calcium 500
Prednisone 5mg
Hydroxychloroquine 200 mg
Naproxen 500mg
Azathioprine 150mg
Lax_a-day for constipation
Amitriptyline 50mg for insomnia
Valacyclovir for shingle

I have to be very carefull cause it is a lot of side effects.

It is almost 10 pills a day I have been taken since 2012.

I can’t have any pills for the fatigue. That's pissed me off!!!!

RA and lupus, methotrexate, folic acid, levothyroxide, tramadol and gabepentin. I was on steroids, now just take shot 3 times a year. Plaquneil didn't do anything. Methotrexate seems to be working. So far 3 weeks in.

For SLE Lupus, fibromyalgia and RA I take prednisone, plaquenil, lorazepam, Paxil, trazodone, pain med, nexium, several vitamins and Benlysta infusions. I think that's all, I might have forgotten some.
