This has not happened to me, but you are not the first person to find that antibiotics relieved their symptoms. Using antibiotics as a treatment for Lupus is not a new therapy and has been around for some time. The concern is that the body will build up a resistance to the antibiotic and then it will stop working. Hence, doctors now usually prescribe plaquenil, prednisone, and sometimes methotrexate as their "go to" initial treatment plans for Lupus.
I agree, do discuss this with your doctor. Please let us know what you and he decide.
Peace and Blessings
