Dont want to beat a dead horse but figured this was as good a place as any to post this. I have been on Lotrel for AGES for my high blood pressure. I just noticed after reading through this post, then doing a search for Lotrel and DILE that there is a warning about taking Lotrel if you have Lupus. I am wondering if my long term use, a LOT of unprotected sun exposure last summer, then taking handfuls of Advil in December along with an antibiotic for Sinusitus has led to DILE. I think I will ask my PCP to put me on something else - although with all the weight I have lost in the last four months and my steady use of my Respirate - bio-feedback thing for reducing blood pressure - my BP is doing quite well so I may be able to go off BP meds completely (fingers crossed).

Will also discuss with my Rheumy on Friday. Should be an interesting discussion. Will keep you all posted.
