Not saying Cellcept "would be better for pulmonary issues". Just saying three meds are used at about
the same stage of Lupus - Imuran, Cellcept, and MTX. As far as I know, there are no clear guidelines of which is better/worse for any given situation, jut as there is no predicting which of these will help any single individual.
Each Dr has there own way of checking thru symptoms & deciding what order to try these in. For me, Imuran was first with no results, Cellcept was second with great results given enough time.
