Yes, moodiness is part of lupus -- think of trying to get your head around losing your arm permanently -- it's a HUGE adjustment she is making and it's hard to get your head around it, and the chemical changes from it do affect your emotions on a subconscious level as well. I don't know about
the new med Benlyisa but many of the other meds we typically use also affect chemical balance, hormones, emotions, moods, etc.
Thanks for coming here to get support - while we are mainly for the patients, and I don't know of any caregiver sites specifically for lupus, I for one appreciate your willingness to ask for help and look for answers.
Best wishes for you & GF,
