Hey guys so I recently saw a new Rheumatologist and he said that I had both fibromyalgia and SLE. I'm only 20 by the way. So here I am quite baffled about everything.
I'm here because he started me on dexamethasone because the prednisolone was so much harsher on the stomach however as I've started it, I feel so out of it. Does this make you put on weight as much as the prednisolone? I don't like steriods at all, I usually lose my appetite and its just a bad time for me.
In accordance to the plaquenil, I've also started taking a new drug called azathioprine. I was just wondering if anyone takes it and would warn me of any side effects that I should prepare for? Or is there anything that I should look out for and keep ensuring stays healthy in my body ie organ function etc?
Thank you guys for always responding and helping me get through this! I dont know what I would do without the forum and all the help received!
I look forward to your responses and thank you in advance!
