I'm on diltiazem and cimetidine. But diclofenac? The rhuemy put me ON it.
It is listed in Lily's post on the first page.
I'm concened about the diltiazem. I'VE been on it for years. We've tried alternates, but nothing has worked. The rheumy knows I take it for PH, so surely he would have mentioned it if he thought it could be DILE instead of SLE, don't you think?
Thank you so much, Lily, for taking the time to explain all this. I do have to take the diltiazem (cardizem) for the PH or... well... it's not good. I can't take beta blockers or ace inhibitors because I've had severe asthmatic reactions. You're right, if I have to take it I have to take it. I was taking it for a few years before being diagnosed, but we BELIEVE some hospitalizations years prior to starting it were flares. You're right. Call it a zebra or a horse, it needs fed the same way. THANKS!
