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.

Hello there cher,

I would just like to add my voice to the others and I certainly wouldn't go off any meds without medical supervision. As someone else mentioned, the side-effects of stopping can be very severe and that's without talking of having a lupus flare because of stopping meds.

It is obviously definitely time that you called your rheumy and got an appointment pretty fast.
