@A myRAteam Member amen to that. I just tried not taking anything for a month bc i was tired of side effects of medications and went into biggest flare ever. Its important we keep taking our medications
I use Celebrex, and it does seem to help control the pain. When I had surgeries, I had to go off it for a few weeks.. and felt it!
I was on Celebrex for a long while and I found it very good until I tested positive for Lupus, he said don't worry about it, the medicine is probably causing a false positive so next time I was going to get tested, I went off of Celebrex for 6 weeks prior and lupus test was negative, I worried that if it could change my body chemistry, what else could it change and never touched it again.
This was my experience and meds work different on everyone, but if any of you were diagnosed with Lupus after you got on Celebrex, I would want to find out if that is real!
Praying that you’ve found something that will work for you.
