Just wanted to say hello, looks like a great group of people here. I was just diagnosed with MCTD,& sjogren's syndrome. This has been a hell of ride the past couple years. I'm looking forward to chatting with everyone. I take plaquniel 200mg/twice daily,(my lifesaver), prednisone 5mg/daily,(the other lifesaver~so to speak), doxycycline 100mg/daily, Vitamin D 50,000U/once weekly, mild pain reliever and muscle relaxant in needed. Has anyone else had a very low Vit D, yet get plenty of sunshine? And is anyone else taking Doxycycline daily? I would love to here the results after taking it for 6-12 months.
