I am on Leflunomide 20 mg for psoriasis arthritis and I think I might have pneumonia. I don't want to stop taking the medicine bc that will bring too much pain. Does any one know how it works when one gets treatment for pneumonia?
This is my first time having pneumonia. I have never felt so fatigued in my life! I am a 55 year old woman. Besides tiredness, I have a constant echo- type ringing in my ears. I'm not sure if this is caused by Levaquin? I have also lost my sense of smell and taste. Very depressing.
