Hi everyone. I Recently seen my renal consultant and said they need to start me on treatment as my lupus is effecting my kidneys (lupus nephritis). I have 2 options- to have rituximab which has to be given with steroids but i dont tolerate steroids as i have a psychotic reation (very scary). Or take mycophenolate for upto 5 years. But would not be able to get pregnant whilst on mycophenolate. My problem is im 30 years of age and plan in the near future to have children. My nephrology consultant says rituximab can be given without steroids, anyone had it without steroids?? Thanks xxx #psychosis #rituximab
