Will I need medication for lupus?
Your treatment will depend on your symptoms. Your healthcare provider may give you aspirin or a similar medicine to treat swollen joints and fever. Creams may be prescribed for a rash. For more serious problems, stronger medicines are used. Your healthcare team will choose a treatment based on your symptoms and needs.
Always tell your healthcare team if you have problems with your medicines. Let them know if you take herbal or vitamin supplements. Your medicines may not mix well with these supplements. You and your healthcare team can work together to find the best way to treat all of your symptoms. Read more about treatment here.
