Get a new one!!!!!!!!!!!! You can't put up with one who treats you that way. Know how you feel, but find one who's more knowledgeable and understanding. I am lucky with mine because even though my case is mild, I've never been able to get off steroids, and he is so supportive and willing to try other things. Hope you can find a new one.View Thread
I have been on Cell Cept for several years. Now on only 2 a day. Was on the highest for about a year, but have gradually tapered off. It really helped after I had a bad flre that lasted many months. It has kept the flares to minimal and ones I can handle. My rheumy says I'll be on it forever. Can't do much of anything else as I also have autoimmune hepatitis-rules out alot of drugs.View Thread
I had a problem with the Plaquenil, but it wasn't the sulfa-turned out I have an allergy to quinine. I do take sulfasalazine with no ill affects, but my rhuemy won't let me take any sufa antibiotics-can too easliy cause a flare.View Thread
I'm in NY (on Long Island). If you look at the pharmacists site, they will tell you that the four generic manufacturers are all backordered with materials needed to produce it: www.ashp.org/drugshortages/curren/tbulletin The only one with any kind of a release date gives mid-July-so be happy you got your supply. My rheumy says many of his patients are experiencing the same problem. He put me on prednisone and I don't feel it is as effective and I just feel different. I'm going away next week and have saved my last 2 week supply to take with me so I'll feel more normal.View Thread
