Are you being treated by a rheumatologist? If not, I suggest you find one. If so, you need to see the rheumy not your PCP. It gets confusing if 2 Drs try to treat the same condition, and a rheumy is the expert on Lupus.
It sounds as though you may need one of the other medications that help Lupus, such as Prednisone, Cellcept, Imuran, or MTX. If none of those help, perhaps even Benylsta or IVIG.
