Living well with lupus

If I have a fungal infection, are all anti-fungals safe for me to take?

There are different types of fungal infections, and different types of treatments for these infections. Some of these treatments, for example, Lamisil, are not recommended for people with lupus. If you have lupus, it is important to always speak with your doctor about your treatment options, risks and benefits before taking an antifungal. Together, you and your doctor can determine the best strategy to treat your fungal infection.
