Comment:
I was prescribed sulpha about a month ago for palindromic rheumatism. It is a type of arthritis that comes and goes in severe episodes of pain. I am 18 years old and since starting the drug I have been taking 2 hours naps everyday from exhaustion, headaches nearly everyday and a constant urinary tract infection. Any advice on how to get rid of these side effects?

Mentally, ... Show Full Comment
