I was officially diagnosed 2 days ago and have had symptoms for about 9 months. I have a few questions. I started plaquenil and prednisone 2 days ago. I am so sick from the plaquenil, will this go away? Also has anyone ever not taken the meds, what if I decide not to take them, besides pain of course. I have been reading a lot about homeopathic things and diet. Are there serious risks to not taking the medication or just pain and symptoms? Thank you.
