One of the more challenging aspects of managing daily life with vasculitis is keeping up with medications and medical information. This is important for all aspects of your health, but this is particularly important when you have vasculitis.
It is crucial that you and your doctors know exactly what medications you are taking, the dosage, and when you are taking them.
