In brief: Mixed CT Disease

The medications include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids), cortisone drugs/steroids (such as prednisone), antimalarial drugs (hydroxychloroquine), and cytotoxic drugs (such as methotrexate, azathioprine, and cyclophosphamide).
Organ damage, such as in the kidneys, can require additional treatments directed at high blood pressure, etc.
