    Default are there any lupus drugs that DONT cause infertility OR weight gain?

    I have been given the options of steroids, methotrexate or imuran. I dont really want to become infertile, and the last time I was on steroids i gained a lot of weight. TIA

    Hi redvines,
    Are you taking Plaquenil? It doesn't seem to cause weight gain, and I think that some of our young ladies who are preggers or have recently had babies have been able to continue it even during pregnancy.
    Hugs,
