If your symptoms are not being controlled, you will probably be placed on a longer-term regime of prednisone. And if that doesn't help there are other medications that can be added, such as Imuran, Cellcept, and Mythltrexate (MTX).
Yes, Sjogren's Syndrome is often a secondary disease with Lupus. However, you don't want candy in your mouth all the time, save your teeth! Try Biotene mouthwash, toothpaste, and gum. For eye drops, use an Eye Lubricant *without* any medication or "remove the red eye" stuff - lubricant only. Tell your Dr your symptoms!
Feel better soon,
