... I have been on Imuran for several months now and it's working well for me. My understanding is Imuran is very effect for kidney problems. The only side effect I get now is some acne/blister issues, which I'm working on. Early on I had stomach problems but Activia took care of that. Good luck. I know these decisions about medications are nerve-racking. (1 replies)

He has been in remission for 1 year... (0 replies)

... Joannebas, Welcome!!! :) I'm sorry it is under these circumstances, but believe me this is the place to be for questions, support & encouragement. I am another that Plaquinel (hydrxo...) helps. I take 400mg. a day, unless I go into a flare then it is temporarily upped to 600mg. to get things tolerable again. I have taken Prednisone in the past but not for about 6yrs. have... (5 replies)
... Kathryn So sorry your in a flare, they're so painful and wear you down so much. Hope for better days for you soon. Basically what I am going to tell you is similar to what our other "posters" have said. Except I will tell you what long term prednisone use did to me, which I must say did not show up for several years after. I developed osteonececrosis (bone dies) several... (4 replies)

... Hi, I'm new to the board, but not new to this autoimmune soup/drug mess. I've taken both. Either drug is as safe as any drug.

Lupus SLE
Feb 14, 2008
... Hi. This is my first time to a Lupus forum too. I was diagnosed with SLE in May 2007. The "good news" was I had so many of the criteria, there was no mistaking my dx. The bad news, I was in kidney failure... They started me on Chemo to suppress the flare and jump start my kidneys (had 4 rounds instead of 12 I was told initially), along with 80MG of prednisone for 3 weeks. Was... (12 replies)
Methodrexate
Feb 12, 2008
... Hi MarchRose ;) I was on methotrexate 25 mg once a week for about four years. Initially, I had flu-like symptoms, including vomiting. I took it on Saturday, allowing time to get sick and recover so I could make it to work by Monday with a minimum of side effects. Honestly, it took about 6 months before the weekend "blahs" tapered significantly. My doctor monitored my... (5 replies)

WHY I have a photosensitive... (5 replies)
