Patient Comments: Scleroderma - Treatment

What kinds of treatment, therapy, or medication have you used to manage symptoms of scleroderma?

Comment from: Bug43, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: April 15

I've had diffuse scleroderma since 2009 and have been able to successfully manage my disease and symptoms with minocycline. I also take vitamin D3, which helped my muscle spasms. I started with 100 mg twice a day. Now I take 100 mg twice a day, every other day.
