Imuran, Cellcept, and MTX are all commonly used with Lupus. Since we are all different and respond differently, it is difficult to know ahead of time which of these may help any one individual.
For me, Imuran did nothing -- no side effects, no improvements either. Cellcept was my miracle drug, and gave me back my brain (was having serious cognitive issues), although it caused some minor hair loss.
Other people have great results with Imuran but not Cellcept, or have more interesting side effects, or....it just really varies from person to person.
Imuran doesn't sound like a bad option for you. If you don't have bad side effects, and don't see improvement, ask for a trial on Cellcept or MTX.
