There hasn't been a new officially approved medication for lupus in decades is the answer to your question. However, there are some drugs being used to treat lupus that are "newer", but not officially FDA approved for lupus. These drugs include Cellcept and Rituxan - generally speaking they are used in more severe cases that have been resistant to other treatments.

Lupus medications include: Plaquenil, Mepacrine/Quinacrine, prednisone, methotrexate, Imuran, Cellcept, Rituxan. These are the ones you hear about being used most often at least.
