Question Rheumo appt tomorrow for Lupus. What meds to avoid??

I was diagnosed w/ Lupus a year ago but decided to try natural products in order to avoid the side effects of prescription meds. But now that my arthritis gets unbearable at times and OTC products don't help, I made an appt w/ my rheumo to discuss a med for my bad arthritic days. I'm not wanting to try the Prednisone due to the horrible side effects. What meds would you recommend that I ask the doctor about for my arthrits that won't have nasty side effects? I also have problems w/ extreme fatigue, insomnia, memory problems, & painful facial cysts. Any med recommendations for those areas as well?

My appt is tomorrow so I'd LOVE your advice before I see my rheumo.
