Weight loss is scaring me!

439 Views 9 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Cher2
I have lost nearly 30 pounds in six months, and I do not need to lose any. My appetite is almost non-existent, I'm always worn out, and anything sweet (even just a small sip or bite) makes me severely queasy. I looked up the side effects of my Lupus meds, and all of them include loss of appetite, nausea, and possible weight loss. So I am giving serious consideration to going off my meds--albeit slowly and one at a time--because what's going on is really scaring me.

Hi Cher,

Have you had your thyroid checked recently?

I agree with Maia about checking with the doctor before you go off your medications. Not all medications can be stopped abruptly without bad consequences. It is also possible that your doctor may want to change medications.

Take care,
