    Just looking over this again. Feeling bad !!!!!
    But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

    Take Care,

    I discovered I was sensitive to sulfa drugs back in college (nearly 20 years ago), yet I was just diagnosed with lupus 2 years ago.....this is just one more thing that says hmmm, I think I've had this for quite some time, but just did not realize.

    thanks for the info.
    i am allergic to sulfa drugs, and i found out recentlly that celebrex has some type of compound in it that is related to sulfa drugs i think it was sulfate, and my doctor said i couldn't take that either, and some creams have it also that i can't take.

    I had no idea sulfa drugs could cause a flare. Thinking back, I have had bad reactions to sulfa each time I have been on it. I just list this as an allergy now. Thanks for the info.

    Thank you so much for this info! There are so many things I'm learning that were signs that I had this before hand and never would have paid attention to, like the sulfa meds.

    Default Sulfa drugs

    I just did a round of sulfa drugs to treat an infection not knowing how it can affect those of us with lupus. Had a BAD flare afterwards. This is good to know. I had no idea that sulfa drugs could cause a flare. -- Irish
