    VALERIE: I tried a few medications that first year, and I definitely felt better. I was still losing my hair, but the steroids helped and I was able to manage my weight. But I wasn’t tolerating all of the medication well.

    ON-SCREEN TEXT: Valerie’s initial treatment plan*: Hydroxychloroquine; 400 mg/day – 2 years; Mycophenolate mofetil (not tolerated); Prednisone: 10 mg/day.

    VALERIE: Then my doctor shared that he was concerned about the potential long-term effects of steroids and how, over time, lupus can take a toll on my organs. I was really concerned about what would happen in the future.

    VALERIE: We had to find ways to reduce my steroid dose and limit the impact of the disease on me.
