Hydroxicloriquine-Lupus(Autoimmune)-Prednisone & COVID19 Vaccine?
My name is Darlia.. Recently diagnosed (Sept) with Lupus. Had symptoms most of my life. You know how hard it is to get this diagnosis.
So no besides the other numerous AUTOIMMUNE diseases I have now I have the concern over the COVID19 vaccine
*I am taking 200 mg of Hydroxicloriquine 2 x a day.
*I stopped taking prednisone a few days ago –
Had only taken for 45 days.
I was on a small dose of 2.5 mg a day.
*I am taking Synthroid 100 mg 2 x a week and 50 mg the other 5 days.
*I am taking Lyrica 50 mg 3 x a day.
*I am taking Folic Acid 1mg a day
*Recently stopped taking Atrovastatin for cholesterol
*I have CKD. And only 1 kidney
*I have Peripheral Neuropathy
*I have been told I have Gout by my rheumatologist but haven’t had the extensive tests yet, just one blood lab and a suspicion about a callus on my foot as having the tophi.
I am mostly concerned about the interaction of the vaccine with the Hydroxicloriquine because this medication lowers the bodies ability to fight infection as well as the prednisone, which I’ve only stopped a few days ago.
I am scheduled to get the vaccine (#1) on Thursday.
It’s the Moderna one BTW.
So any medical advice I can get that’s real, true and non biased will be appreciated
