... prescribe this medicine?
Hello nolacs and welcome to DC. Without knowing more about you and whatever else is going on with you medically, I can tell you that it is prescribed to treat inflammation and autoimmune disorders. If you are concerned about this med... I sure would be asking the doctor who prescribed it why it was prescribed and if it is a long-term med or short-term.
I hope that helps you and I want to also help you have a better visit with your doctor. If you are one who doesn't talk much then perhaps writing down a list of questions, concerns and the like will help you have a better, more productive visit - one that doesn't leave you with more questions than answers, in other words. God knows our visits with these doctors aren't long enough! I have a number of doctors who like to see my sheets of paper with those questions and they do take the time to talk with me about my concerns.
Be well and take good care of you. I hope you will share more here and also pray you are on a good course of treatment and feeling better.
