As I read the posts here, I am noticing more of our members being diagnosed with Lupus (SLE) during or after taking Remicade or Humira. Some developed drug-induced lupus symptoms that resolved after stopping the medication, others still have SLE 6 months or longer after stopping the medication. I decided to begin this poll after seeing another relatively new member mention that they too have developed SLE.
Please note - this is NOT a scientific poll. The question was worded in a way that that would likely drawn responses from mainly those who have dealt with the problem. Therefore I encourage all that are starting one of these two medications not to be overly alarmed by the outcome of this poll. We all must be informed when we start ANY new medication, so do your homework.
