Lupus and Anxiety/Depression Meds...(and joint pain)
I have always had a problem with anxiety, but the last few months it has gotten a LOT worse. I know if I asked for it, my rheumy would give it to me, but i hesitate because...I dont know. I dont want to seem like a crazy pill popper, I guess. I have read some research on how the vast majority of people with lupus have anxiety and depression...What medications are you guys on? What would you recommend? Or stay away from? Also, the pain in my joints has gotten a LOT worse as well...My dr put me on Naproxen but it doesnt seem to help...I woke up at 3am this morning crying because the pain was so bad...what medications are good for joint pain? Any and all information would be very much appreciated. Thankyou so much!
