I have to agree with everyone that in your best interest don't stop taking your meds. Letting the lupus have it's license to do whatever it darn well feels is not good for your organs. If you are not having organ damage now, this is not the time to decide to be rebellious. Many of us live with organ damage and fight everyday to keep them (our organs) working as best as possible. While we all hate taking so many drugs, it's in our best interest. But if you are deciding to stop your meds talk with your doctor and get off of the meds in the appropriate manner (ie- steroids dosage has to be lowered gradually especially when on high doses and for long periods of time) so that you don't send your body into a tail spin. Sometimes we have to be straight with each other. We only want the best for you as a group. I hope I did not offend you by what I have said. I just don't want you to do more damage to yourself (HUG). Best of luck and keep us posted :multi:
