about 5 weeks ago I started on Arava (lefludomide), after having an allergic reaction to
Plaquenil. I have not noted any real effect from the med but I have had such fatigue and nausea and diarrhea (sorry if that's TMI) after taking the Arava for about 2 weeks. I know that the med takes several weeks to really begin working but is it likely that these side effects will continue for the duration? The stomach issues I can handle but this extreme fatigue is really affecting my life. I work full time and on the weekends all I want to do is sleep. LAst Saturday I slept until 1pm and then napped from 3-4:30pm! And still felt exhausted! Any suggestions, advice, encouragement?? Thank you!
