Customer reply replied 6 years ago
methotrexate2.5mg take 5 1s aweek predisone 5mg hydroxychloroquine 200mg 2xday
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 6 years ago
OK
if you are still sick ask this doctor about
imuran
cellcept
ariva

These are drugs that work completely differently from the others. Although somewhat similar to methotrexate.

there is also a newer drug benlysta

Treatment at this point has to be individualized.....

Good luck

Let me know if you have further questions, details or need clarification, just use reply.......

i still do no what to think about what is going on with me i cant get a stright answer from any dr they tell me they dont know what is causeing this
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 6 years ago
This sounds like you have drug induced lupus that has not been adequately treated.
I would suggest you see a different rheumatologist if needed, unless you will follow up with the one that put you on so many meds at once.
You can verify in some cases that it is drug induced if a lab test called anti-histone antibodies is positive.
good luck

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
