    So i gather this could possibly help p&ps as well, especially if it's used with lupus (and lupus has a nice rashy bumpy inflammation). But i don't think any of you had that with your rosacea type?
    It worked very quickly. My flushing reduced within a few days and stayed that way the whole time I was on it. I dont take it anymore and whilst my flushing came back when I stopped it is not at the level that it was.

    I dont really get any papules (not since my lasers) and so cant comment on this.

    Sorry i don't have access to pubmed, i shouldn't of used it as an example i do have access to other medical websites e.g. sciencedirect, i just used pubmed as an example.

    I should be able to get those articles though because my grandad i a DR and has access to most of these websites, the reason i can't get pubmed is because it is US based, i am in the UK.

    So i will get around to getting access to these articles asap.

    seriously atleast try,you have a 50/50 chance of getting it,if they are not sure in giving it to you,come back and tell us what they said (so we can provide what to say back)

    thats what I did,I told lamar what my doctor said and lamar told me facts and what to say back and it worked along with my pleading

    No plans at the moment. I am sticking with dosing on the vitamin D3. I will see Dr Chu in July and discuss it with him then

    As I posted I did go to my doctor with this and he said he would do some research into it. That was about 3 months ago but I haven't been back to him since. I will keep everyone posted either way.

    I've been away from the forum for a while and just found this thread. I've been on Plaquenil for over two years (for Sjogren's) and my flushing is just as bad as it ever was, so for me at least it hasn't helped there. I've been on Clonidine for many years (for Rosacea) and while I don't think it's ever helped my flushing it seems to help keep my nose from swelling and turning red.
