Hydroxicloriquine-Lupus(Autoimmune)-Prednisone & COVID19 Vaccine?
<p>Greetings~</p><p>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.<br />So no besides the other numerous AUTOIMMUNE diseases I have now I have the concern over the COVID19 vaccine<br />*I am taking 200 mg of Hydroxicloriquine 2 x a day.<br />*I stopped taking prednisone a few days ago -<br />Had only taken for 45 days.<br />I was on a small dose of 2.5 mg a day.<br />*I am taking Synthroid 100 mg 2 x a week and 50 mg the other 5 days.<br />*I am taking Lyrica 50 mg 3 x a day.<br />*I am taking Folic Acid 1mg a day<br />*Recently stopped taking Atrovastatin for cholesterol<br />*I have CKD. And only 1 kidney<br />*I have Peripheral Neuropathy<br />*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.<br />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.<br />I am scheduled to get the vaccine (#1) on Thursday.<br />It's the Moderna one BTW.<br />So any medical advice I can get that's real, true and non biased will be appreciated<br />Thank you<br />Darlia</p>
