Our Topic of the Month discussion for April is 'Coping with Side Effects'.
It is common for someone with lupus to take many different medications over the course of their life, both for their lupus and for other conditions (which may be related). Some of these medications are generally well tolerated whilst others may present with a range of undesirable side effects which can have an impact on quality of life.
We want to hear your experiences of coping with side effects from lupus medications. Do you find taking your medication in a specific way helps to reduce side effects? Have you worked with your doctor to change your treatment to avoid a bad reaction? Have any changes in your diet or lifestyle had an impact on the side effects you experience?
We would like to hear all of your tips and experiences and we’ll compile them towards the end of the month for an article. Please share in the comments section below, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The article itself will be posted on the LUPUS UK Blog at
