Hi..

I've been reading my books on Lupus, The Lupus Book by David Wallace, MD that antibiotics can exacerbate lupus symptoms. Antibiotics used for UTI's, i.e....sulfa, tetracycline, penicillins, minocyline. ciprofloxacinx and etc. it states.

I had my first and only UTI months back, was prescribed Cipro aka Ciprofloxacin and I had one of the worst Lupus flares that followed....

Sulfonamide-based antibiotics are also sun sensitizers....

Some drugs with sulfa are also used to treat diabetics, colitis, edema and RA...

Names of some are:
Bactrim
Septra
Gantrisin
Orinase
Azulfidine

Maybe this correlates with your symptoms..check it out. Compare like how you shop. You may find something there.

Keep looking for wellness. Under a rock, in a stream, words on a page, a blog on a screen. I hope we all find something that works for us.

Be well,
Oluwa
