I've had the worst flare of my life over late summer, I've had 3 early miscarriages in 1.5 years, I'm almost always in some type of achy state or dead tired. Potential side effects and very real risks make the medication seem ridiculously dangerous. I'm not as familiar with MCTD but what I do know is that is can be just as dangerous as SLE. Is the vision loss something that will stop if the medication is stopped?
