Betaseron & Lupus Risk !!!! ???

Post by MrsMomTo6 » Tue May 28, 2013 8:54 pm

I was on Betaseron from August 2011-June 2012.

My new neuro has informed me that Betaseron use has a risk of producing Lupus!!

But, a secondary 'advantage' of having Lupus, is that the meds used to treat Lupus, actually are better choices for treatment of MS?!?!?!

BUT, MS drugs are bad for setting off other diseases, like LUPUS!

Oddly enough, in the 2 years it took for my docs to Dx. me with MS, I did test Positive for 2 out of the 3 tests needed to test positive for Lupus. But, w/o positives on all 3 of the Lupus tests, there was no Diagnosis for Lupus possible.

Anyone else heard of this?
