Hi Leesha, do you mean Imuran? Imuran, Methotrexate and Cellcept are often what doctors try if plaquenil alone does not control the lupus. I tried the Imuran and had a very bad reaction. Doctor switched me to CellCept and that has helped with all my symptoms. Everyone responds differently to meds so doctors often try different meds until they find one the patient is comfortable with. Good Luck!
Take care, Fran
