I am a newbie ! I have Lupus and I started generic Plaquenil and it gave me GI distress. The rheumie is ordering Brand Plaquenil for me to try. I am taking Prednisone taper down to 5mg daily. I may start Methotrexate in a few weeks. I have a few questions for everyone.
What are your experiences with Methotrexate pills vs injections ?
I had a bad case of shingles in Jan 2017. It took the life out of me. The doc wants me to get the Shingles and Pneumonia vaccine before starting Methotrexate. Any comments about the plan ?
Lastly has anyone experienced sleepy leg syndrome. I'm not sure if its the Lupus or sleepy leg or both. I have had a hard time with falling asleep and waking up through the night.
Thanks for any suggestions
