      I have been on benlysta literally since it was approved by the fda (2010 or 2011). It saved my life. Before it I couldn’t work and my doctor was giving me every med possible with horrible side effects and I was still in a constant severe flair. 3 months after starting it I got a full time job and have worked full time ever since. I still have flares and bad days but they’re few and far between. I’m now able to play with my nephews, enjoy life with my husband, perform all my tasks at work, and most of all feel like a person

      I was advised to start taking it because of my kidney function. If I understand correctly, the drug is partially effective for lupus

      Hi! I'm still using the regular drugs, but my doctor said some promising things about benlysta. Have you tried any other biologic therapies?
