It is best you check with your rheumatologist, certain antibiotics affect lupus sufferers (for example those antibiotics containing sulfa) and may increase symptoms.


I would check if with your rheumatologist. I only found out I was alergic to penicillin after taking it and my face swelled up like a baloon.


Checking with a pharmacist may also be useful. Hope the treatment works out just right. xxx :)
