Dizzy
A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

Has anybody experienced dizziness with imuran, and found it improved with addition of plaquinil? Low tolerance at best of times to mess... I always get the weird side effects! But I'd appreciate insights. Felt plaqunil had aggravated fibromyalgia and joint pain, but off it noticing dizziness I had when first staring imuran last year. May have lost tolerance, or it's just one of those weeks.
