my mom made me start taking this medication for my acne that I've been on for two years. on my birthday last year, I was diagnosed with drug induced lupus from this medication. apparently it isn't as rare as everyone thought..but that's beside the point. I have to take this other medicine so that my organs and everything are protected and I thought it would help make me better faster, but in 4 months I've only moved from 1/60 healthy cells to 1/80. 1/320 is healthy. my doctor says I need to eat more or I'll never get better... anybody have experience with this? I feel awful all the time so I would kind of like to not be in constant pain.. but I don't know if he's just telling me I have to eat to get better because he wants me too. any input would be helpful.
