i was wondering if there are any vitamins or supplements that people recommend taking to help their lupus or symptoms of lupus (brain fog, joint pain, fatigue, ect.)?
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)
Meds- I’m taking hydroxychloroquine. They’ve had me on a bunch of different pain meds, but they either cause water retention, headaches, or do nothing to help the joint pain. Would love recs for meds.
As for supplements- I take 10000 iu of vit D. That’s not a typo. 10k daily. Glucosamine and magnesium citrate (helps with GI inflammation I have because of SLE). I also have an Rx for 10mg of Adderall daily which has helped tremendously with brain fog and I think all SLE patients should have this as an option. I had to insist on it, and I’m glad I did. I thought I was losing my mind, could barely finish a sentence I started my mind would wander so much. It is also obvious the minute it wears off - as if my brain was Cinderella’s carriage and then it’s a pumpkin again.
I feel you the fatigue is the worst part of it all especially the brain fog.
i’m currently on a whole bunch of vitimans! i take a multivitamin, 135 mg of iron, 500 mcg b12, and 500 mg vitiman c. those are the ones that are targeted to my fatigue and pain. i would always talk to your doctor and see if they recommend others but those might be something to look into
