Don't skip the eye appointments. I took Plaquinel (hydro...) I can't spell the gerneric name. For six months seven years ago and it put me into a long term partial remission. I had a bad flare two months ago and immediately asked to go back on plaquinel. It should kick in soon and they will take me off prednisone.
If she has side effects such as nausia tell her to nibble on pretzels or crackers as soon as the nausia starts. It helped me.
