Hi there, I am newly diagnosed with (?mild) Lupus and have been commenced on prednisolone 15mg and plaquenil just over a week ago. Prior to that I was on Mobic 15mg a day which allowed me to function within limits. I have not taken Mobic since starting the other meds, and was wondering if it is safe enough to take Mobic still, as the prednisolone doesn't kill the pain as well as the Mobic does. I did ask the rheumatologist and he said to take it I if I need to (man of very few words), but I am still unsure about stuffing all these heavy duty meds into my body.
Is it Ok to need more than Prednisolone for the joint pain, and are these drugs compatible.. meaning mobic and pred?
