Hi, just wondered if anyone had any experience with this drug? I have been doing some research trying to find some specific meds for my kind of lupus and this one came up a few times. Any info on this would be great, any side effects and whether it worked for you. I think the pred is mainly working for the other symptoms, but not for the lesions, and with summer coming I'm eager to find something that works a little better. My rheumy is having trouble getting the lesions under control. My kind of lupus is normally much worse in the winter, but not in my case. The summer is much worse. thanks x x

Hi Lion:

Sorry I've not heard of this medication, but I'll try to do some research on it too. Hope you can find something that works for you that doesn't have to many side effects. Hope you have a good weekend.

Take Care,
Barbara

lion, I haven't heard of that medication either. I just wanted to say that I hope the docs can help you and help get your lesions under control - they sound very painful.

Take care
