A friend of mine with RA told me about taking tumeric (herbal supplement) for fatigue. It seems to be working really well so far. It lasts longer than advil. I was curious about other people's experiences with tumeric. I took plaquinil for several years... it was great at first, but gradually became less and less affective until it was no longer working for me anymore. Did anyone have this experience with plaquinil? I'm wondering if I'll have the same sort of experience with tumeric. Do you guys have any experience with tumeric?

I take a supplement that has numeric in it. It helps a lot with my joint pain, unsure about the fatigue b/c I also have hypothyroid. Prozac helps me with my fatigue. I take 300 mg of plaquenil daily, it didn't seem to help me that much with fatigue, even when I was on 400 mgs. I guess I just have too many things that contribute to fatigue.
