Was at the rheumy today and she suggested starting cellcept or imuran since she thinks that my lupus is active again. My kidney function is at 28%. I have also had some lesions that tested positive. The last time my lupus was active was ten years ago and these drugs were not being used.
I have been on Imuran for several months now and it's working well for me. My understanding is Imuran is very effect for kidney problems. The only side effect I get now is some acne/blister issues, which I'm working on. Early on I had stomach problems but Activia took care of that. Good luck. I know these decisions about medications are nerve-racking.
