I switched from Remicade due to allergic reactions and a loss of response. I actually switched from Remicade to Cimzia but then switched to Humira from there (and have gone back and forth over the years). I only had to wait the normal 6 weeks that I was going between infusions. Switching was the best thing I could have done and I should have done it sooner. Sorry, but I can't answer about
the lupus. Good luck!
