Hello again Sue

I see that Denise hasn't visited the forum in the several months since she posted - I have replied to your post on that thread.

Hi Sue and :welcome:

As Lola said I can't help with any info on the drug but just wanted to say Hi!

Hope you don't feel as bad with the second dose of raptiva. Let us know how things go.

Take Care

Mrs M

Hello Sue

I'm sorry you were so unwell and hope this second round will be easier. It is great that you already see some improvement. I have read that it shows within the first couple of weeks. Thanks for letting us know - this info will certainly help others as it is a very new treatment for discoid although already used successfully in psoriasis. Could you ask your doctor if it would help the unfortunate people who have both skin lupus and psoriasis- they have to be careful with Plaquenil because it can make psoriasis worse.

All the best
Clare
