Depressed - can it be lupus?
Hope you're all hanging on in there. I was wondering if a persistent sad and empty mood is related to lupus or medications. I'm on CellCept, steroids and hypertension pills.
And I've been feeling nauseated every morning for a while now - never happened in the past 2 years except after cyclophosphamide IV injections. Any ideas for what I can do? It's definitely a side effect of one of the medications, a new one though.
I'm trying to lose weight but I crave sugary foods at night; any diet you would recommend? Is it possible to lose weight while on medications?
Best wishes. Dina
I was diagnosed with lupus nephritis, confirmed by bloodwork and kidney biopsy, and mild lupus cerebritis (epileptiform) in June 2004.
Medications: CellCept, Prednisone; Phenytoin; Lipitor; Zestril, Norvasc; Aranesp (darbepoetin alfa).
