Living well with lupus

What seasonal allergy medicines can I take?

The use of antihistamines, decongestants and steroids for seasonal allergies generally pose no problems for those with lupus. However, there is a theoretical risk that allergy shots may trigger a lupus flare or cause other complications. Always consult your rheumatologist as well as your allergist and talk to them about what medications are right for you to find seasonal allergy relief.
