I just had an appointment with a new Rheumatologist because my awsome doctor left town. This new doc want to change my azathioprine to something else a mi....something (cant remember the name) and shes putting me on prendisone for a month to try to get a hold of this faster. She says that my matkers are too high. I feel ok, just been a little more stiff and a little more pain and swelling than normal. I also feel a bit more tired but not sure it merrits prednisone!

My doctor put me on another prednisone dose pack for six days. I have significant inflammation in my joints and it is very difficult for me to walk and get around. I recently started plaquenil and I’ve been in a flair for quite some time. My question is what is the point of taking a short term Dose of prednisone when the inflammation will only return And most likely I will feel worse when it does. I’m not interested in taking a long term dose of prednisone and my question is should I take the… read more
My doctor put me back on steriods because I feel like Im literally on ny death bed. Does anyones eyes look like this in steriods dark? Its not normal to me. I also got a rash going on too.
For those of you that added this drug to your regimen, how many mg are you on, 50mg, 100mg and how has it helped you that Plaquenil alone didn’t do, my very close girlfriend is really struggling and I told her I would post this and hopefully get some answers for her. Plaquenil just isn’t helping with rashes, aches and pains, etc, thank you all so much, she is my sister from another mother, lol, we are close
Here is one more question. Your symptoms of a flare that has your doctor prescribe prednisone, how many mg does he prescribe, once or twice daily, and for how long. Thanks again

So as some of u already know ive been battling pericarditis for the last 3 weeks 🤦🏽♀️man has it been the worst ever, anyway i saw a new rheumy today who was a doctor who finally listened to me and prescribed me 200mg plaquenil twice a day, so im guessing i take this for breakfast and dinner, not to sure. How do u all take yours? Are u on this dose? And im also on 10mg of prednisone as she felt the 50mg was too high. But i take that 3 times a day. Do u guys take all of your meds at once or alter… read more
I have recently broken out in red bumps on my arms, legs, and hands. Anyone know what it is and what I can do to resolve this? They don't itch just look horrible.
Does everyone plaquenil or have you opted out of taking it? I was taking it. My other doctor stopped it now my new dr want me to restart. Thoughts or suggestions will be helpful.
Please let me know whether you used Prednisone and are now using something non steroidal for the pain. Does CBD oil help.
