Cymbalta changed my life. I felt 90 before I took it. My pain is managed very well now. I also take Hydroxychloquine.

Easy Random Bruising

Easy Random Bruising

Hi gang,
Discovered several small bruises on my body today. They are not in the high traffic typical areas. I have 4 on the underside of my right forearm and a few more on my left upper thigh. I have been ill the last couple weeks and thought it was a flare but all of my recent labs appear stable, the only noticeable change is that I started Cymbalta 2 weeks ago.
Anyone deal with this?

@jean5236 I’ve got them down the back of both lower legs (for three plus years). Not on prednisone or other lupus meds and they started before hydroxychloroquine 🤷🏻‍♀️

Anyone Have Experience With Cymbalta?

Anyone Have Experience With Cymbalta?

My doc wants to switch me to Cymbalta bc it doesn’t interact with Amitriptyline (sp?) and other meds. Yet, I have been doing so well on my Effexor, I hate to try an unknown drug, especially having so many reactions to meds.
So, I was wondering if anyone could share the good, bad, and/or ugly experiences they have had with it.
Thank you!!!

Wondering If Anyone Has Been Having Any Issues With Inflammation?

Wondering If Anyone Has Been Having Any Issues With Inflammation?

I've been having leg pain when I walk or stand and had so many different tests and everything comes back positive. The only thing that helps me is methylpredniosolone. I don't want t stay on steroids. I would appreciate any feedback possible.

Have you ever had an mri of your back or spine. That pain could be caused by degeneration of the spine or spinal stenosis. I think you would need an mri for a diagnosis.

Does Anyone Take Plaquenil With An Antidepressant?

Does Anyone Take Plaquenil With An Antidepressant?

I am on Plaquenil, and my doctor wants me to take an antidepressant (specifically Prozac) for both depression and anxiety. I am scared to mix antidepressants and Plaquenil due to reading that these can possibly interact, but I’m tired of suffering from mental health issues. Does anyone safely take Plaquenil with an antidepressant? Prozac to be specific, or any of the SSRIs? Thank you so much in advance.

No, & never again will I take those awful meds.
God bless everyone in finding a healthier way
to deal with their journeys. 🙏🏼
