I am a diagnosed lupey, used to suffer from a really bad itchy blistered red rash, could come up anywhere but mostly on hands and face. I took myself off hydroxy a year or so ago ( having been on it for 5+ years) after doing some basic research into side effects, I found that the rash could be one, in rare cases but has happened. I haven't had the rash since!
BUT really suffering complete exhaustion now, rhumy advises to go back on the hydroxy, in fact she was very put out, and basically rude about the fact I really don't want to go back on it again, saying its 'the' drug for my symptoms. The rash was so bad and left horrid red scarring I'm not going back.
I wondered if anyone else has had similar incidences and if there are any other drugs you find helps the fatigue. Back to my GP tomorrow, not sure if they can help but we shall see.....Thanks
