Hi everyone just wanted some advice on drug change. I'm currently taking deflazacort daily with Metoject injection once a week and Folic acid 1 a week.I'm currently living in Valencia Spain so working with the Spanish health system is quite tricky.
Anyway I have been on this combination for a year. I got in touch with a friend in the UK who is a doctor and said I should stop taking the deflazacort steroid and think about a combination drug such as the metoject with either sulfasalazine or hydroxychloroquine.
I've never heard of them has anyone has problems with these.
I read that hydroxychloroquine can effect your eyesight (mine is very bad as it is).
I.m trying not to over think it but i'm also concerned about the long term effect I'm going to be 35 and want to think about having children in the future so its all concerning me. Any advice is appreciated.
The Spanish sun has been really good for me and generally i feel good but i know i cant stay on the steroids long term.
thanks for listening
