Does anyone know which meds are ones you need to be more careful about being in the sun?
Bratcat is on asacol, 6-mp, remicade, and 25 mg prednisone. Which of these are the most problematic with the sun. We know she has to be careful. She always wears a high SPF sunscreen. She isn't purposely going into the sun to get some color (although she really could use it) but just being outside helping in the yard or walking around. She got more pink than she normally does.
