My rehumotologist has recomended this treatment for me. I know little about it and was hoping to get positive feedback.

    I started the Benlysta a month ago and so far so good. We’ll see how it goes.

    I am supposed to be starting Benlysta this month and the doctor says it’s sippos to help relieve my joint pain and inflammation.

    Everyone is different when it comes to medication and symptoms. I can’t and wouldn’t take a chemo base drug or steroids. Just do with what I have and can.

    I started Benlysta in January and I read that it takes at least 28 days to start working. I feel the same to be honest because I’ve only had 3 doses. I inject weekly. I do know that you have to continue take your other lupus medication is order for it work.
