Does anyone have any helpful information on how to manage the pain that comes with lupus?

This might sound stupid because it's an over-the-counter, but Beyer Advanced extra strength is a time release NSAID and that means it doesn't dump the medicine all at once, so you don't crash in pain again and it works amazingly on overall aches. I'm saying this just in case you hadn't discovered it, because my doctor prescribed aspirin with codeine and the second I used this, I never went back to the prescription. Costs less than a prescription as well. (10 bucks will get you 80 pills).

I'm an avid fan on 800mg of ibuprofen up to 4 times a day, with food. Liq gels work fastest and the come in generic now too!
