I’ve been told to think about next treatment which my (lovely!) rheumy says I need to start now. I think his preference is rituximab (but he’s very clever and has learnt with me that I need to feel it’s my choice!) but has also said methotrexate. I have ‘failed’ on MMF and azathoprine. Had a big neurolupus flare 9 months ago, trying to decrease steroids but reflare once I get below 12.5mg.
Has anyone got any advice as to which to go for please or anyone had a hypersensitivy reaction to MMF/ AZA then been ok with methotrexate or rituximab?
Although I’m quite excited that the rituximab could make a massive difference I’m also a bit worried I could have a bad reaction (I react to so many things since lupus and have an epipen now).
Any experience/ advice appreciated please!
