That is very unusual. If you have Lupus, they tend to avoid Remicade as it aggravates the disease. Are you under the care of a Rheumatologist?
A more standard treatment is Plaquenil, which inhibit disease progression and thus protects you from organ involvement. If you are having disease activity (inflammation), Prednisone is used to treat short-term inflammations.
For more severe inflammations, Dr generally go to either Imuran, Cellcept, or MTX -- it's unknown which of those might work for any individual patient, so it's trial and error. Imuran did nothing for me, but Cellcept put me into remission.
