I have a bad butterfly rash on my face. Red and hot and burning. I wasn’t in the sun at all. How you do guys take care of it? It’s getting worse every day. I can’t even go out without mask so frustrated . Please share your exp and help
I was on it for 2 years as it quit working. Made me hurt so my rhuemy said just use the hydroxychlorquine, we had to increase it to 300mg to help with the hives.
Recently I was prescribed Methotrexate to replace Hydroxychloroquine as my Lupus meds. i had to stop taking the Hydroxychloroquine due to Retinal Toxicity diagnosis. I am somewhat apprehensive starting this medication. The symptoms are very concerning. Has anyone had a good or bad experience taking Methotrexate. Feedback greatly appreciated.
I’m concerned about serious long term ramifications from use of either of these medications, but right now they are a necessary evil. I’m not looking for common AE’s, I’m looking for serious AE’s associated with long term use (PML, malignancies, serious infections, liver & renal impairment, etc). Thank you!
Thank you for sharing your experience 🥰
