This drug saved my life!!!!! I have been on literally everything. Arava (off due to hypertension reaction), Methotrexate (off due to pulmonitis reaction), Cellcept no response, and Im sure there is more but my mind doesnt want to think about
it right now. I have been on it for 4 years now. Though I have some pretty bad ups and downs, I no longer have active interstitial lung disease or asthma due to this medication. It litterally has been cured. No Lie. I loose my hair in globs after I wash it but that has always been the case with me. My anti DNS DNA is still really active along with the low C3 C4 but Not have the active lung disease is wonderful. I still have the scarring though that will never go away but thats better than the life I was leading. I wish you all the luck with it. Other than the hair loss, I dont really think I have had any real problems with it.
