In brief: Many but need doctor
The first thing to do is define your lupus, everyone with lupus is different.
You need to contact your physician - see a rheumatologist, define your lupus and then you decide on your treatment. Not everyone with lupus needs meds, but you need good health habits - no smoking, exercise, etc defining your type of lupus will clarify the best medications for you to take.
