Hello, I was diagnosed with Lupus two years ago. When I was first diagnosed the only symptom I had was joint pain, Rheumatologist Diagnosed me with lupus arthritis. I was on prednisone, hydroxychloroquine, cell cept, famotodine, 80mg of aspirin, caltrate w vitamin d... I was taken off the perf by my rhematologist after about a year. I absolutely hated taking that. About a year later I started lowering myself and skipping taking everything like on and off. I haven't had a flare, thank god, since the night I was diagnosed. And now that I've been off of it for two months I havent. I'm a little weary of telling my rhematologist... Are there any easy ways to be honest? I don't want to offend his practice, he's a wonderful doctor, I just want to get off all the steroids and harsh drugs. I will like to take a more natural approach to relieve my lupus, although I haven't gotten a flare, to basically keep them from returning.
