Yes, I have depression. I'm not sudicidal but I have my sad days and overwhelmed with my conditions. For some reason depression likes to mess with us. I take paxil and will be seeing a therapist next week to help me.
The plaquenil will help with that lead arm feeling, but it will take about 3-6 months for the full effect to kick in.
Are you using sunscreen and covering up from sunlight and fluorescent lights?
My rheumy praised me today for wearing SPF clothes. He said it will help me a lot.
