i am not on Benlysta.....
but i watch its progress with great interest.
i noticed this study from lupus foundation of america.

i hope it helps reduce the fear in some of us.
it is a harsh drug, with strong side effects.

but it is to combat a strong immune system out of balalnce, so some of us NEED this.

Thank you for finding this. Too often we forget what the side effects are of NOT treating our disease. This medicine is not for people with a milder form of Lupus and you are correct, it is needed by many
