I have been on Mychophenolate for 6 months as well as Hydroxychloroquine and prednisolone for even longer. My consultant wants me to reduce the prednisolone by 5mg. I can't,every time I do I have a huge flair up and the pain is unbearable. I have been diagnosed with RA,Lupus,sjrogrens and have a low platelet count (although this is now up to 70), Next it seems rituximab is to be tried. I'am so scared! I hear there can be fatal reactions, I want to be better.
Reading the views there seems to be a lot of hope for this drug. Has anyone had the treatment for these overlap problems?
Has anyone ever come across serious side effects?
