Yes, primrose oil is supposed to be good for both the those things. I take it, along with omega threes, though i must confess, I haven't been as regular about them as I should. I am also on enbrel, though had to stop the mtx due to chronic sinus inections. Still using plaquenil though.
Don't know if it will help, but the brand that was reccommended to me is Nature's Way EFA Gold. It says High Potency 1300mg. 1 pill 2 to 3 times a day. Like everything we take, they told me it would take a while to see some results.
sure hope it helps, wouldn't that be great? You'll have to let me know when and if you see improvement....they told me it could take a couple of months. Just like all of our other meds, I guess, I would be rich if I had a dime for every time I've heard "we have to give it 8-12 weeks". lol
take care, Jody
Hi. I've been taking epo for a few years now for severe PMS that started a few years back (and a couple of years after I had my 2nd child). My PCP recommended it and it does help greatly. I cannot recall if I started it when I was on Remicade or not. However, I'm now on Arava and Plaquenil and don't notice a problem with the interactions. I just know it does help quite a bit with the pms symptoms. I found results somewhat quicker than 8 weeks, I hope you find the same. The only thing I should warn you is a lot of epo is mixed with vitamin E. If you have liver concerns (I do), make sure you buy a bottle that does not include the vitamin E.
It is good to hear that it may also help with menopause as I'm sure that is just around the corner for me. Let me know what your results are with taking it.
