In brief: Different types

The classic drugs are medications that are used for treatment of things like heart probelms (procanamide), blood pressure (hydralazine), seizures (dilantin), etc, but not everyone who uses these drugs get drug induced lupus.
Recently some of the biologic drugs that are used to treat rheumatoid arthritis can cause a lupus liek syndrome. Usually stop the drug and the drug induced lupus resolves.
