I did when I found out I was pregnant and I didn't have any withdrawal symptoms. Hope the same for you. Take care!
So do you have RA?
Yes I do. I'm still having pain but pregnancy isn't helping any. The reason I stopped is bc I didn't want to take while being pregnant.
what was your severity of pain before you stopped?
I would say a 5 but I still had good and bad days. Now that I've stopped I can tell that it was helping me
I did... About a month and a half ago after 7 years.. İt brought up my liver enzymes.. Back to normal now.
Yes... And diabetic.
Lora Fritz oh jeez! Are you on any other meds?
Lots... But for the RA.. Mainly just prednisone now. Low dose, just 8 mg and day. Lots of vitamins. Tried alot of different meds for the RA, nothing else has really worked.
I am on sulfasalazine. I quit cold turkey for 4 days but started flaring, so I've been back on it for 5 days now and I'm still not back to normal yet.
how much do u take?
500 mg twice a day
Me but my Doc told me to because if an allergic reaction
My new rheumy took me off it yesterday. Was on 2,000 mgs/day. Took dose yesterday morning, didn't take last night dose. Slept like a baby for the first time in months.
did it affect your sleep? İve noticed ever since i startrd taking it my appetite is down and its hard for me to fall asleep
Kira Hyde no matter what time I went to bed, I only slept two hours. I had horrible indigestion, nausea and no energy.
Mine didn't affect my sleep, but for the first few weeks it upset my stomach. I took probiotics and felt fine.
Yes. No effects.
I've tried, but after skipping a few doses, I can really feel it. So, I'm back on. It's the only medication i take, and I take the highest dose.
Just curious, what is your dose?
Yes, threw the whole kit an baboodle away 2 weeks ago. Going to a Naturalpath next week, Was doing great on meds then really bad side effect started. Done with all the chemicals.
Yes I did but I quit to start on enbrel
It wasn't helping me
Yes & didn't notice anything different good or bad
Just started it for the jelling in my feet & ankles! I take Xeljanz for the RA.
No, currently tapering with my rheumatologists supervision. (As much as I fantasize about just stopping I don't want to regret it or relive the pain I was in at my worst... Ever.)
Yes cold turkey, if I had do do it over I would slowly do it. Was on 6 pills for 7 years. But now of for a month an blood pressure lots better and got off one of th BP meds.
I'm down to 1 pill 500ml and 400ml ibf. Been trying to get off of both the last 4 months. If I eat a plant based diet feel real good, as soon as I cheat a litlle pain & swelling come back real bad. Following Dr Robert Morse ND, program
where do you get that programm?
My Rheumy said it's dangerous and very important to taper off
I agree .
I came off it for a month - just stopped taking it one day. Didn't notice any difference physically, but I didn't get to see the blood test results after the month to know whether it is doing something I cannot see.
